Not to be missed

Caños Santos Path

In a unique natural settlement, we can find the Caños Santos Path, an itinirerary frequented by locals and pilgrims on their way to the convent of the same name. The route begins on the road to Pruna, near the municipal cemetery, a landscape full of olive trees; it continues through plains that allow visitors to contemplate beautiful panoramic views of the Sierra of Grazalema and Sierra of las Nieves. For just over two hours, the route offers unique sceneries.

Church of Saint María del Valle

The Church of Saint María del Valle is a religious temple built in honor of the patron saint of the town, which stands out for its exceptional facade and the size of the building. Baroque in style, it was built between the 17th and 18th centuries, although over time it has been remodeled due to the wear caused by the passage of time. It has three naves, and its interior contains relics such as a 17th century baptismal font and the ‘Tabla del Milagro’, a Baroque altarpiece depicting the miracle of the construction of the Caños Santos Sanctuary and the Cristo of la Buena Muerte.

Espera

Saint María de Gracia Parish Church

The Saint María de Gracia Parish Church is a Renaissance religious building built between the 16th and 18th centuries. This prolongation in time of its construction is due to the earthquakes that struck the town in 1636 and 1755. With a Greek cross plan, the façade and the main altarpiece belong to Baroque architecture. Until 1628, the name of the temple referred to Santa María de la Victoria, but from 1633 onwards it changed its name to the one it still bears today. Inside, the main altarpiece is preserved, which consists of canvases representing the Annunciation, Presentation, Visitation, Transfiguration, Epiphany and Adoration of the Shepherds. Also of note is the image of the Santo Cristo de la Antigua, which is venerated in the hermitage of the castle. This pictorial composition had to be dismantled after the damage suffered in the Lisbon earthquake, which caused the church to be closed until 1963.

Arcos de la Frontera

Sierra Aznar Road

Arcos de la Frontera

House-Palace of the Count of the Eagle

The House-Palace of the Count of the Eagle was a Mudejar-Gothic style house, considered to be one of the architectural jewels of the town precisely due to the mixture of styles. Although it was built in the 15th century, after the street was lowered in 1852, its façade was raised even higher.

Prado del Rey

Pilar de los Playeros Road

Pilar de los Playeros Road runs from the town center to the source of water with a fountain with two spouts that gives its name to this path. This fountain is located on the side of the A-373R road, which links the town with Villamartín.
