Gójar forms a part of the Natural Park of Sierra Nevada and is located in an AREA traditionally called La Campana granadina, which is an old region surrounding the city of the Alhambra. Gójar, which is just 8 km away from the capital, maintains significant architectonic examples in the old town, such as: a 16th century Parish Church, attributed to Pedro Machuca, the same architect that built the palace of Charles V within the Alhambra; and the so-called Casa Grande (Large House), a 16th century mansion.

History

Presently, the village utilizes the industrial, commercial and service sectors of the capital, Granada.
