This municipality of Almería of just under 1,000 inhabitants is located in Sierra de los Filabres near Tabernas Desert.
The origin of the town seems to be during the period of Muslim rule in Al-Andalus but it was finally conquered by Christian armies in 1488.
Currently the population is mainly engaged in farming and animal husbandry; there are also places worth considering if you pass by the village.
