Description

Ubrique's municipal area is located between the mountain ranges of the north and the Campo de Gibraltar region. Its relief consists primarily of hills, mountains and pastures. Parts of the village belong to Los Alcornocales Natural Park, while others lie within the boundaries of Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park.

The origins of the village date back to the Christian reconquest, though it was previously the site of an important Roman town. It stands in the bed of a stream at the foot of the mountains, displaying the typical appearance of the white villages, and boasts a number of places of interest, such as the Roman Ruins, Saint Anthony's Church, the Capuchin Convent and Cardela Castle.

Ubrique is one of the leading production centres for leather goods, yet another reason for tourists to visit the village.
