This municipality is part of:

Arjonilla is a predominantly agricultural community and the vast majority of the land (80%) dedicated to olive farming. A particular highlight of the town’s architectural heritage is the Iglesia de la Encarnación (Church of the Incarnation), whose construction began in the 16th century and is rendered in the late gothic style. Key features of the building are the renaissance doorway, with a triumphal arch, and the plateresque doorway which provides access to the vestry.

Also worth a visit is the castle of Trovador Macias, a 13th-century Christian work which has been recently restored and is included in the “Route of Castles and Battlegrounds”.

Other highlights include the Casa del Juzgado (Courthouse), with its mannerist façade dating from the year 1617, and the chapels of Jesús (17th century), la Virgen de la Cabeza and San Roque.
