A typical valley village, the only one which is completely traversed by the River Guadalhorce, featuring a green landscape with abundant fruit trees, citrus trees and vegetable gardens, dominated by the Sierra del Hacho.

The village"s origins date back to the time of the Catholic Monarchs, and its most noteworthy monuments are St. Peter"s Church, the Count of Puerto Hermoso"s Palace and Virgin of La Fuensanta Chapel; also to be found in Pizarra is a museum exhibiting the works of the painter Gino Hollander.

History

The AREA must have been inhabited in Roman times, though insufficient relics exist to determine an exact period.
Its name appears in records for the first time at the end of the 15th century, when the Catholic Monarchs awarded land in "the Pizarra region" to Don Pedro Romero in return for capturing Alora.
