History

Ventas de Huelma derives from the Arab term wali'ma, meaning "banquet", probably due to the past existence of a recreational farmhouse under Muslim rule.
It is believed to have been the geographic centre of the old district called El Temple.
It is located in the old route of large farmhouses from Granada to Alhama, which is why its history is closely linked to both cities.
