Güevéjar is geographically located in the AREA known as Campana Granadina, which in the past referred to the jurisdictional lands of a parish church.

La Campana was said to cover the lands where the bell struck from one of the Alhambra Towers (Torre de la Vela) could be heard. According to this, Gúevejar would come under La Campana, since it is situated at the foothills of this valley and just 10 km away from the city of the Alhambra.

History

In 1755 a strong earthquake destroyed most of the farmhouses, and in 1884 the so-called Earthquake of Andalusia forced its inhabitants to move to the present site of the village.
Presently, the village utilizes the industrial, commercial and service sectors of the capital, Granada.
