Village situated to the north of the province, in Sierra Morena Mountains, on the border with Castilla la Mancha. Its mainly mountainous landscape is made up of mountains covered with abundant pines, oaks and other trees.

Within its district, we can find the Cimbarra Waterfall Beauty Spot, a place of spectacular beauty due to its rugged slopes, the gallery forests along the river Guarrizas and its varied fauna.

It is also an important cultural meeting place due to the abundant cave paintings found in the Tabla del Pochico and in the crags of the Cimbrara.

History

In the al-Andalus period, a great battle was fought nearby, between King Alfonso VIII and the almohades of Al Nasir.

Its origins come from the new colonization villages fostered by King Carlos III and implemented by his minister Pablo de Olavide in Sierra Morena in the 18th century.

In the beginning it was called Aldehuela. It received inhabitants from very different places, both Spanish and foreign. It was an important crossroads of paths going to the different places in Jaen.
