We travel through Spain each year and love having a couple of stopovers in different towns. Zafra was not a disappointment and it was a charming place to explore. Easy to walk round, although we actually have folding bikes so cycled. Everything of interest is centred around the historic old town; two lovely squares, Plaza Grande and Plaza Chico, adjoining each other. The gates to the old city, old churches, and the old castle, which is now the Parador. Even the town hall is an amazing moorish style place, with a beautiful balconied courtyard, well worth a visit. Lots of places to eat, very helpful tourist information on the Plaza Espana, and overall yet another beautiful place in Extramadura.

A lovely little town square, nice place to just sit for a few minutes (especially on a sunny day), or you can visit one of the cafes that surround the square.

The focus is very much on the convent - life there in the early days, habits, a tiny cell, works of art and furniture, reliquaries, the long relationship with the noble house of Feria... - and although there is more (e.g. about the history of Zafra and the area long before the community ever existed), this is the main thing. I was particularly impressed by that tiny cell.
Signs and panels are almost all in Spanish, but they're not very long and quite easy to understand even if you don't speak the language.
The nuns make and sell absolutely delicious little cakes.
It's also possible to visit the richly decorated, intensely spiritual, convent church, with funerary effigies of the Feria family. On the wall opposite the door there is an unforgettable figure of Christ crucified.
Sometimes there are Concerts, talks, and special Exhibitions in the museum or the church. The tourist office (924 551036) will know.

A good way to see Zafra is to pick up the leaflet from the Tourist Office. It is a walking route around the town with marked attractions along the way. This arch I think is the old entrance into the town which leads on to Plaza Chica. Note the footprint in the arch which was used as an old measurement.

Significant famous paintings inside this historic church. Free to enter and worth a visit. Lovely old building. Dont miss this when visiting Zafra.

I'm not sure whether the arch we see now, leading to the street that goes into the old town, is the original town gate, or whether the town gate wasn't originally the apparently earlier arch in the ancient tower that stands next to it, with the weathered statue of Saint James the Moor-Slayer on his horse in a niche in the wall above, but the second is certainly more romantic.

I liked this bodega, it was an old convent and you can see where the apple orchard was before they put a roof over it. Upstairs is a museum with lots of tools and carts used in the trade from long ago. Lots of certificates, paintings And awards achieved! And the best surprise of all there is a bull ring on top of the building. Hard to believe! Amazing!

Este museo de la medicina de Zafra es un gran desconocido , se encuentra en una Antigua casona que ha sido rehabilitada . El museo se dispone en tres plantas en los que encontrarás distintos tipos de piezas. Entrada gratuita. Visita de interés aunque no se encuentra en el centro. Fácil aparcamiento.
Muy curioso, pero un gran desconocido que merece la pena visitar.
