Pinos Puente is located at the foothills of Sierra Elvira, in the northern most side of the flat lands of the Vega de Granada, a wide area covered with the greenery of the poplar trees and the well looked after irrigated plains watered by the river Cubillas, which meets the river Genil. To this privileged location, one can add its proximity, just 16 km away, to the city of the Alhambra.

History

The remains of the Roman city of Illurco, located in the Cerro de Los Prí­ncipes, show the historical importance of the area that now houses Pinos Puente in the past.

The history of this village runs in parallel to nearby Granada.

According to the chronicles, it was in this bridge, for some the only Visigoth bridge in Spain, although it seems that it was built by the Moors in the 10th century where Cristopher Columbus was reached by an emissary of Queen Isabel the Catholic just when he was leaving, after the first talks about his Trans-Atlantic project broke down.
