The influential Larios firm established the Guadiaro Industrial and Agricultural Company in 1887 and included Los Álamos and Las Bóvedas country estates. During this period agricultural colonies started to be created and developed into small villages. This is how San Enrique was founded, following the Larios Family's tradition of naming these colonies after their members, in this case Enrique Croke Larios.
Estación de San Roque
The village of Estación de San Roque (San Roque Station) was offically created in 1909, by virtue of a resolution adopted a year earlier in the month of December. The new village was developed due to the new railway line between Algeciras and Bobadilla, the first section of which was inaugurated in June 1890.
