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.
In 907, it was conquered again, this time by the emir Abd Allah. And, when Bobastro, a fortress at the centre of Omar Ben Hafsun’s rebellion, fell into the hands of Abderraman III in 928, it was the start of a period of great prosperity for the region, in which commerce, industry and agriculture blossomed. However, this period of splendour ended with the political and economic division which accompanied the era known as the Taifa Kingdom period; by the end of the 11th century, the village’s lands were abandoned and impoverished.
