A town in the northwest of the province of Jaén, in the distract of Campiña. It’s the <strong>most westerly settlement in the province</strong>, bordering the province of Córdoba.

The landscape is smooth and typical of this olive growing region. The local economy is based on agriculture, mainly olive farming, although there are other crops such as cotton, sunflowers, beetroot, sugar and corn, which are sown on the plains of the Salado river. Some strongholds of white-grape vineyards and cereal plantations still remain, which were an important part of the local economy in the past. The town has a long wine-making history, but these days there are very few hectares of vines left.
