The Bobastro is located near the famous Caminito del Rey in Ardales/El Chorro. Many people don’t know that this rock-hewn church from the Moorish era is absolutely unique and definitely worth a visit.
Some background information
The history of this village, nowadays a ruin, goes back to 880 before Christ. During this period the Moorish ruled in Andalusia. The rebel Omar Ben Hafsún settled in this inaccessible area, also known as Las Mesas de Villaverde, with gorges and ravines. Together with Mozararabs and other Islamic groups he had taken refuge here to prepare the uprisings against the Cordovan Caliphate.
