This municipality is part of:

This township has the rather unusual feature of being divided into two enclaves: one in the southeast, which contains the town of Orcera, and the other in the northwest of the district, bordering the province of Ciudad Real. The farming lands are located in the west of the municipal area. The town is found hidden on the slopes of mount Peñalta, with an excellent layout and medieval centre. The local economy is dedicated to olives, olive oil, hunting and forestry. Tourism is also an important sector since the town is one of the gateways to the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park.</p>

Amongst its historic heritage are the Iglesia Parroquial de la Asunción (Parochial Church of the Assumption), the Torres de Santa Catalina (Towers of Saint Cataline), the fountain known as the Fuente de los Chorros and the Old Town Centre.
