The Old Quarter

The primitive and original urban nucleus has a complex layout, characteristic of old Andalusian cities. During the Middle Ages it was concentrated around the castle and the church, with narrow alleyways characterized by their irregular, interwoven streets, rather like that of a maze. Subsequently, and adapting to the contours of the land, the town expanded downwards to the surrounding somewhat flatter areas, with wider and fairly straight streets, in contrast with the initial concept. In short, a curious and complex combination of urban designs that give the town its own unique character.

Currently fully restored, with paved streets and beautiful stone houses, it is remarkably multicultural, since it is home to people from central Europe and North America.
