About the Area
The origins of the town stretch back to the year 1000 BC, as can be seen by the great number of remains from each historical period. Osuna got its name from the Turdetans, an Iberian tribute which called it Urso; several objects remain from this period, such as the "Bull of Osuna" and the "Relief’s of Osuna" (these latter showing a Roman Influence).
When Pompey made his last unsuccessful stand against Caesar in Osuna, the city fell into his rival's hands, and Caesar gave it the status of a colony (Colonia Genetiva Iulia), the importance of which is suggested by the laws found in the "Osuna Bronzes".
