Cazalla de la Sierra

Cazalla is located in the heart of the Natural Park. Its outstanding cultural importance is based on its history, which has provided it with a unique monumental and ethnological wealth.

El Pedroso

Human presence in the area of El Pedroso can be dated back to the Palaeolithic period, thanks to the discovery of flint arrowheads. The Neolithic megalithic culture was also present in the area, as has been confirmed by the recent discovery of a tholos. El Pedroso, like most towns in the area, gained importance after the Reconquest.

This shrine was built during the Almohad period. Its construction is dated to 1147-1269. The building was renovated in the 16th century and again in the 19th century.

The 15th-century Gelo Shrine was built in the Mudejar style, and its slender bell gable was added in the 17th century. The shrine is located three kilometres from Benacazón, on the road linking Seville with Villamanrique, opposite the Hacienda de Gelo.

Originally, this shrine was part of the 16th-century San Sebastian Hospital. Only the pointed-arch doorway leading to the courtyard remains from the original 17th-century shrine. The building was renovated in 1896, but owing to its poor state of repair, it was torn down and rebuilt in 1903.

Guadalcanal

Although Iberian remains have been found and some historians maintain that Guadalcanal was the Tereses named by Pliny the Elder in his Natural History, the first major settlement in this town dates from Moorish times and was called Wad al-Qanal, "river of the canal", or, according to popular etymology, "river of creation".

La Puebla de los Infantes

If you take a look around the National Archaeological Museum one day, you will find a hundred pieces of gold and silver from the 3rd century BC known as the Treasure of La Puebla de los Infantes. This exhibit speaks volumes about the importance this town has had throughout history.
