Location

About the Area

Located in the north east of the Antequera region, in a landscape primarily made up of hills and ridges which are home to olive groves and cereal fields. It dates back to the 18th century, when the buildings which began to appear around the Franciscan monastery eventually formed a village. Villanueva de Algaidas was the birthplace of the famous sculptor Ortiz de Berrocal, whose works are housed in an interesting museum in the village.

These four villages were all founded at practically the same time in the 18th century on the orders of Charles III as part of a plan to repopulate areas of Andalusia which were practically uninhabited and which, as a result, often served as highwaymen’s safe havens and lairs.
