This little village is situated to the south east of the province, in the foothills of the Sierra del Pozo Mountains.
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.
Within this little village, you can find the Church of San Marcos, the only monument of interest. Nearby, we can also find the interesting necropolis of Castellones de Ceal.
The village was called Traxinum in Roman times.
During the al-Andalus period, the village received the name Hins-Nojar, due to the abundance of fennel (hinojo) in the area.
It was first a hamlet belonging to Pozo Alcón until 1690, when it was declared a village and given to the estate of Don Iñigo Rodulfo Fernández de Angulo and later to the Earl of Arenales.
