Located between the Natural Parks of the Sierra de Grazalema and Los Alcornocales, this area has been populated
since Neolithic times, as can be seen at the archaeological site at Cueva de la Dehesilla.
Its artistic heritage is represented by the Parish Church of Santa María de Guadalupe and the Town Hall, both built in neo-Classical style, and the Bullring.
Given its privileged location, there are many leisure options on offer for visitors to the town, from game-hunting (as is
reflected in the local cuisine) to hill-walking in the Tajo del Águila to fishing in the River Majaceite, while the Guadalcacín II
Reservoir offers kayaking, sailing and beach.
A compulsory date for your agenda is the Subida a Algar Rally, which draws many fans of cars and motor-racing every year.
