This is a typical mountain village situated in the Sierra de Segura Mountains, under the white Peñalta, among olive groves.
Among the places of interest we must mention the Parish Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción and the numerous fountains within its municipality.
Part of its municipal district is included in the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas National Park, the largest protected natural space in Spain: an orographic labyrinth of valleys, calares, gorges, mountains and flat lands of enormous hydrological importance (due to the numerous rivers and streams which spring within the Park); of great botanical importance (different varieties of pine trees and a lot of endemic species); it is also important aesthetically and from a wildlife point of view. Because of this it is one of the most visited and frequented natural spaces in the country.
According to the legend, the moor Ben Atan founded the village.
After the Christian reconquest, its repopulation is associated with Navarre.
