About the Area
Avoid visiting Écija in the middle of summer. It once registered an alarming 52 degrees centigrade on the thermometer and is known as La Sartén de Andalucia (the Frying-Pan of Andalucia) which is no exaggeration!
There are also some splendid houses here which date back to the 18th century when the local nobility bought homes in the town. Many of the mansions are particularly distinctive for their flamboyant architecture displaying interesting shapes and patterns.
