The layout of their streets and the architecture of their whitewashed houses, which create unforgettably-picturesque corners, gives them a unique seal of identity, so much so that, together, they make up what is known as the Mudejar Route (Ruta del Mudéjar).
The highlights of the village are St. Andrew"s Church and the nearby Turret House, with its adjacent Mudejar tower.
The Sierra de Tejeda locations of La Maroma (its highest peak), Cueva Horeada cave and El Salto del Caballo all lie within the village boundaries.
