Iznatoraf (also known as Torafe) is one of the prettiest places in Jaén, one of the highest in Andalusia and, doubtless, one of the places that most surprises visitors. It’s located in the north-east of the district of Las Villas and sits on a hill at an altitude of 1,036 m, looking out over dozens of square kilometres of olive groves in every direction. The view facing the Sierra de Las Villas is spectacular and from this fairly unique viewpoint, you can make out a good part of the province. The town itself is a melting pot of cultures (Arabic, Jewish and Christian) which have left a rich artistic legacy, and it has preserved its layout of windy, narrow, white-washed streets within the original Arabic walls.
