About the Area

Archidona stands at the foot of the Pico del Conjuro mountain amidst olive groves and meadows, on the road that links Antequera with the province of Granada.

The Moslem occupation consisted of several stages. Following the proclamation of Abderrahman I as emir of Cordoba in 756, Archidona, a dependency of the aforementioned city, became the capital of the cora (region) of Rayya (an area which, roughly speaking, coincided with the modern-day province of Malaga). It was in the thick of the muladi (Christian convert to Islam) rebellion of the late 9th and early 10th centuries, led by Ben Hafsun, who turned it into a fortified town.
