The Andalucia region

Between Europe and Africa and meeting point of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, this region has been coveted by many different cultures throughout history.

The variable landscape go from the heat of the Guadalquivir River valley through to mountain terrain by way of the volcanic landscapes of the Tabernas desert, and the snow-capped peaks of Sierra Nevada. In barely forty kilometers you can go from Alpine mountain landscapes to tropical areas on the shores of the Mediterranean.

Andalusia today is a modern region which offers a warm welcome to visitor. Andalusia is the main holiday destination for Spaniards and overseas tourists. Don't miss it. Andalusia loves you…


Olvera is more than twelve thousand years old, going as far back as the Palaeolithic era, the Phoenician and Roman settled here. the Romans calied it either Hippa or Hippo Nova. The area was overrun by Visigoths from the Baltic region in the 5th century then by Berber armies from north Africa in the 9th century. The Berbers called the town, Wubira. The town fell to the Christian reconquistadores in 1327.

Our town's most famous son is Nicolás de Ribera, the leaders of Spain's conquest of Peru. He was first mayor Lima, in 1535.There is a plaque mentioning him near our house.

During the 19th century Olvera was notorious, as a bandit refuge, hence the famous Andaluz saying: 'Kill your man and flee to Olvera!'

one of Olvera's modern-day tourism attractions is the Via Verde an abandoned rail-line turned into a hiker/biker route linking it to Puerto Serrano, one of the most remarkable walking experiences in Andalucía, with half a dozen viaducts, more than twenty tunnels, two wayside restaurants and a small hotel at the Olvera terminus.

The Hermitage Church of “Nuestra Señora de los Remedios” (Our lady of the Remedies) is near Olvera on the road to Torre Alháquime and Setenil. This is a unique building and well worth the visit.

The tourist office is in the Edificio la Cilla, Plaza de la Iglesia, by the Encarnación church
