In Linares you can find the heart of the Oretania, the famous city of the Cástulo, birthplace of beautiful Princess Imilce, who won over Rome's most fearsome Carthaginian general, Hannibal Barca. Historical documents say that thanks to its strategic location, Cástulo was important for trade in Iberian and Roman times. The Guadalquivir River was navigable from here, and important Roman roads from north to south and east to west ran through here.

Many important discoveries have been made recently in the Archaeological Site of Cástulo: the amazing Cupid Mosaic in 2011, which National Geographic named one of the top ten discoveries in the world; another great mosaic in 2012; a large lion that guarded the wall gate in 2013; and lastly, in 2014, a glass paten with the image of Christ in Majesty, from the first half of the 4th century.

These two days around Linares will enable you to discover its typical landscape - Sierra Morena pastureland mixed with olive trees, and dotted with buildings that speak of its important mining and industrial past. You will find a friendly and modern city, steeped in history and stories, and entertaining all year round. It is the region's shopping hub, and offers countless cultural, sports and musical events. The birthplace of important figures who were proud of their origins: the great guitarist Andrés Segovia, Raphael, Carmen Linares, Francisco Baños, Sebastián Palomo Linares, José Fuentes, Curro Díaz, and Miguel Ángel Belinchón, to name but a few.

. Delicious and varied tapas, which are included with the drinks, can be found in all the bars.
