A village situated in the west of the province, in the heart of the countryside.

Its landscape is made up of undulating fields of cereals and other herbaceous crops, in the midst of which stands the village centre, with its irregularly laid-out streets, the highlight of which is the flat-topped tower, a relic of the old Guadalcazar Palace.

History

The village's name is of Arab origin and means "river near the palace or fortress".

It was reconquered by Ferdinand III and ceded by Henry II to Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, Lord of Aguilar, who exchanged it with don Lope Gutiérrez of Córdoba in return for Montilla estate.

Diego Fernandez de Cordoba was later named Marquis of Guadalcazar.
