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!
The tourist office also just happens to be housed in a former palace with a fabulous portal in contrasting tints of marble, while the Museo Histórico Municipal has a fine collection of artifacts in a serene setting of palms and patios.
