Accommodation and gastronomy in the Sierra Subbética
The villages and small towns provide a variety of accommodation, from country cottages, to bed and breakfasts, and small to medium sized hotels. The widest choice is available in Priego de Cordoba, Cabra, Zuheros and Lucena.
Apart from the top quality olive oil, the local land offers a wide variety of products: from small game hunting (partridge and rabbit) to wild boar; goat stew and cheeses; lamb dishes; sherry type wines under the Montilla-Moriles label; and the Cordoba variety of cold tomato soup (salmorejo).
Local villages have a long tradition linked to sweets and cakes, ranging from the panecillos de cortijo from Luque, to mostachos and roscos de anís, as well as the mantecados from Rute or turrolate from Priego de Córdoba, which are often eaten at Chritmas with a glass of local aniseed based alcohols or liquors.
