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 main altar in the church features a pine tabernacle with eight columns 'jónicas', that is, of the Ionian or Ionic school of architecture, with the familiar fluted columns and elaborate capitals of classical Greek architecture.
