North of the Hoya de Guadix, between Alicún de Ortega and Guadahortuna, between fields planted with sunflowers, we find the municipality of Alamedilla.
In the village stands the Parish Church, dating from the sixteenth century.
It is thought to be a village of Moorish origin, although its history can be traced back almost 3,000 years before, when this land was inhabited by tribes of prehistoric men, as the archaeological sites in Hoya de Guadix have discovered.
After the Christian conquest, Alamedilla belonged to the Crown of Castile.
It has three irrigable areas: The irrigation channels Pueblo and Peñón, with water from the Guadahortuna River; the irrigation channels of Hacho Bajo and Rambla de lo Ancho.
The main rain-fed crops are barley and sunflowers.
