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 fiesta is the one celebrating patron saint San Benito Abad, which is held on July 10-11 every year. The town's summer feria happens every first fortnight of August.
