Zambra Castle

Zambra Castle, locally known as Castillo de Zambra, lies on a hill amidst extensive olive groves, above the village with the same name in the province of Córdoba in Spain.

The village of Zambra was already known in Roman times as Cisimbrium. It is now part of the municipality of the nearby village of Rute.

I was not able to find any historical info about Zambra Castle, other than that it was a medieval castle. So if you know more, please mail me!

What remains today of Zambra Castle is rectangular in plan, some 18 by 26 meters. Inside the structure there are several partially collapsed spaces.

Zambra Castle is freely accessible although it takes a 45-minute walk from the village below through olive groves without distinguishable paths. But when you visit it really feels like a discovery!
