Sorihuela del Guadalimar

This small town belongs to the El Condado region but most of the municipal district lies within the Nature Reserve. The most emblematic place in town is the large Plaza de los Caños square, where two large houses stand, and where eight streets converge, making it a point of reference for the locals and visitors alike. It owes its name to the fountain with seven spouts that presides it.

An ancient, restored public washing place known locally as Las Pilas stands at one end of the Plaza de los Caños. Very few of them are left in these towns.

Sorihuela’s 16th century parish church, dedicated to Santa Águeda, is built in the Renaissance style. It is made entirely of ashlar and it houses two 16th century carved images, one of Santa Águeda and the other of Jesus on the Cross. Sorihuela still preserves a Moorish tower that probably dates back to the 9th century, which stands on a rocky hill at the top of the town.
