A village of white houses and a typical exponent of Andalusian architecture, it belongs to the region of Condado and is situated close to the province of Seville.
Within the village itself, St James the Great's Parish church and the chapel of the Virgen del Valle stand out as buildings of interest.
Part of its territory is included in the Doñana National Park and the Entorno de Doñana Natural Park. The first has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco because it is the most important ecological reserve in Europe; a real throng of animal and plant life; a fundamental stopping place on the migratory routes of an infinity of birds; a breeding place for numerous threatened species; a refuge for the Iberian linx, the Imperial Eagle, the mongoose and a multitude of herbivorous species; a mosaic of ecosystems (mountains, salt marshes and dunes) which make up one of the most beautiful and impressive places in the country.
During Roman times it was called Omnium.
In Al-Andalus times it was the head of a large region.
After the Christian conquest, it passed under the jurisdiction of Seville as a possession of the Crown, forming part of the Campo de Tejada.
From the Christian conquest until the XIX century it went through times of demographic decadence.
