The last village in the province, it is situated on the banks of the Guadiana, on the frontier with Portugal, on uneven stony ground, full of slopes and hills. Part of its municipal area is included in the Marismas de Isla Cristina Natural Beauty Spot.

Of both fishing and stately tradition, it preserves traces of its different eras such as the ruins of the Roman castle (today a State Hotel) from which you can see the old, rural, mediaeval village and the new seaboard commercial village. It is in a privileged position with an inland port sheltered from the winds and a varied network of communications.

Among the buildings of interest are the church of Nuestra Señora de las Angustias, the Parish Church of El Salvador, Saint Francis' church and the houses of the Spanish emigrants who returned from Latin America.
