Los Canterones

These old Roman and medieval quarries are located about 3 kilometres from Estepa towards El Rubio. 

These quarries were mined for large stones that could be easily cut and shaped for mills and presses. The centuries-old mining operations created the straight strips that give this place its unique appearance. There is a cave or cavern in one the cuts in which the famous bandit Juan Caballero took refuge.
