Alcalá is a beautiful city of Andalusian design, with steep, whitewashed streets flowing into large squares. It has been declared a Historic Site. It is part of the Route of the Bull.
Alcala de los Gazules is a good starting point to explore Alcornocales Natural Park, an ideal setting for active tourist activities (hiking, canoeing, cycling, horseback riding...).
It is worthwhile to hike the Sierra del Aljibe, to go up to its highest peak where you can take in beautiful panoramic views. There is an abundance of roe deer, deer and different species of birds, vultures and Bonnelli’s eagles, among other species.
Very close to the town is the recreational area of El Picacho. It has a nature classroom, camping area and lodging.
Dating from the Middle Ages (13th to 16th centuries), the fortified castle tower is preserved, some sections of the wall and the Puerta de la Villa. In the Plaza de San Jorge, better known as Plaza Alta, the main parish Church of St. George and the Casa del Cabildo are located there.
In addition to its Arab fountains, of great interest are the Arriba, Enmedio and Abajo wells, the Convent of Santa Clara, the old Convent of Santo Domingo and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Saints, where a popular pilgrimage is celebrated every year.
At the Mesa de Esparragal site - on the outskirts of Medina - the remnants of Lascutana Tower are found. It is a Visigoth tower and built with Roman remains. Within the tower, the Lascuta Bronze Tablet was found, the first roman inscription in Spain that is now displayed in the Louvre Museum in Paris.
