About the Area

This peaceful little town of less than 9,000 inhabitants, equidistant between the Costa del Sol, Granada and Sevilla, has been an important cattle farming, leather production and mining centre since Roman times. Archaeological digs in the vicinity have uncovered Roman architecture and coins, as well as brass busts of Octavius, Claudius, Constantine and Trajan. Nowadays, however, it is mainly known as one of the key stops on the Algeciras-Granada rail line.

The most important monument in Campillos is its central Iglesia Parroquial Nuestra Señora del Reposo, the parish church of our lady of rest, which is just off the town's plaza central. The impressive bell tower was built by Fray (father) Miguel de Santísimo Sacramento in the 16th century. Its chief architectural style is Doric, with two stone facades, one Doric, the other baroque.
