Description

The typical eighteenth-century style “serrana” (mountain) houses, surrounded by orange groves, appear on the outskirts of the town of Puerto Serrano, a Cadiz town with numerous archaeological sites attesting to the presence of humans in the area since the Palaeolithic and then during the period of Roman and Hispanic-Muslim colonisation. The most noteworthy sites are Fuente de Ramos and El Almendral, or the ancient Roman settlements of Cerro Castelar and Los Marciagos. In the surrounding area, you can also visit the interesting hamlet of Pozo Amargo, with its ruined Castle. The Vía Verde de la Sierra route starts at Puerto Serrano, the ideal setting to enjoy hiking, cycle tourism or horse riding, or simply to relax. This route follows the green path running along the old Jerez-Almargen railway track, of which 35 km between Puerto Serrano and Olvera are walkable

Artistic Legacy

In this old quarter are the Baroque Santa María Magdalena Parish Church (with a beautiful altarpiece), the La Magdalena Hermitage and the Siré Mill, an old Carmelite convent dating from the 18th and 19th Centuries.
