La Puebla de Cazalla, passionate for flamenco

Come and discover this charming town in Seville’s La Campiña. La Puebla de Cazalla, a town of great traditions, offers cultural and historical tourism and natural surroundings. The River Corbones runs through its countryside, making it an ideal place for hiking and cycling

This town is well known for its love of flamenco. As the birthplace of ‘Niña de La Puebla’ (Dolores Jiménez Alcántara) and José Meneses, this art remains deeply rooted among its people. In fact, the town hosts a Flamenco Festival every summer, an event that has been held for over 45 years. 

In addition to flamenco, oil production is another hallmark of La Puebla de Cazalla. Here you can visit a museum dedicated to its olive-growing tradition. And, of course, be sure to try the aceitunas prietas, which are typical here. 

Another tourist attraction is its beautiful architectural heritage. Wander through the streets and stumble upon places as picturesque as the famous Pasaje del Arquillo. You can also visit the old winery of the bullfighter Antonio Fuentes, who always flew the flag for his beloved town.

What to see 

Start your visit at the Plaza de Andalucía, where the Town Hall is located. It is the town’s nerve centre. Three minutes away is the José María Moreno Galván Museum of Contemporary Art. Here, you can see works by renowned artists, including Picasso, Miró and Tàpies. 

Nearby is the Plaza Vieja, where there is a Monument in honour of Cervantes. Also, here is the Nuestra Señora de las Virtudes Church, declared a Site of Cultural Interest. Look out for the impressive altarpiece made of wood and ceramics, the only one of its kind in the province of Seville. Ask the locals where Pasaje del Arquillo is, the most iconic place in town. Be sure to walk through it before you leave. 

Now head towards the Plaza del Convento, a square characterised by the number of crosses that decorate it. Here you can visit Nuestra Señora de La Candelaria Convent

As you continue to wander through the town, you will come across different emblematic buildings, including, the house of the flamenco singer Lola Lucena (arabesque style), the home of the bullfighter Antonio Fuentes (today used as a senior citizens’ social club) and an old winery. 

Another religious monument is the 18th-century Shrine to San José, dedicated to the patron saint of the town. 

The Oil Museum, located in Hacienda Fuenlonguilla, dates from 1858. Here you can see the mill, the oil press and the oil jars, and learn about how the oil is produced. It also has a room full of flamenco posters and an ethnography and archaeological museum. 

Last but not least, hike to the remains of the Luna Castle, on the outskirts of the town. If you prefer, follow the Vereda de la Plata, and you will come across Hacienda Nuestra Señora del Carmen, a fascinating place to visit.
