The Shrine of Our Lady of Fuensanta was where the most famous bandit of Andalusia, José María El Tempranillo, was pardoned by King Ferdinand VII. It is a shrine dedicated to the Virgin of Fuensanta, which became famous in the year 1383 after the apparition of the Virgin. Initially it was a small grotto near today's shrine, where people went to worship her, and thepresent day shrine was built in the mid-17th century.

There are many legends and cases that relate he Virgin of Fuensanta to the miracles that are attributed to her. It is said that in 1384, a resident of Badolatosa, looking for a doctor who was able to cure him, was walking through this wasteland when the Virgin appeared to him, and said that he would be healed by drinking water from the stream and bathing in it. He did and he got better. He stopped looking for a doctor, went back to his town and told the locals what had happened. Since then, people have been making pilgrimages to that place every year on the 7th and 8th of September.

The original Shrine was replaced by the current one in 1671, which was financed by devotees and the Marquis of Estepa.
