Arroyo del Ojanco

This town, situated outside of the Nature Reserve, is in an exceptional spot on a vast olive-growing plain traversed by the main N-322 road. It is the youngest municipality in Jaen Province, owing to the fact that the long drawn-out process of separation from the town of Beas de Segura did not end until 2001. The ancient olive tree of Fuentebuena, over a thousand years old, is not far from the town. It is ten metres tall and four metres in diameter, which merited it a listing as a Singular Andalusian Tree for its size.

The Guadalmena reservoir is also close by, although it is not actually in the municipal district. The reservoir is well suited to water sports and is surrounded by a lovely hilly Mediterranean landscape. A large Roman villa with important archaeological remains and a beautiful mosaic was found on the Los Baños farm. Currently it is covered by sand to protect it but the town also boasts a visitor centre dedicated to Roman Culture.
