Reasons to visit

  • Visit the ‘Las Pilas’ public washhouse, the best-preserved washhouse in the province. 
  • The town boasts a building by the architect Aníbal González, who also designed Seville’s Plaza de España. Ask about the so-called ‘casa bonita’.

What to see 

Begin your visit at the Plaza de la Iglesia. Here you will find the Nuestra Señora de las Huertas Parish Church. Inside the building is the 16th-century statue of the patron saint, María Santísima de las Huertas, who is highly revered by the locals.

A few metres away, on Calle Acosta, is the ‘Las Pilas’ public washhouse. It was still used only a few decades ago, and its current state of preservation makes it unique in the province.

Walking back, in less than 5 minutes, you will reach the Mudejar-style Shrine to Santiago. Next to the shrine are the remains of the Castle, the defensive fortress that played an essential role during the Christian conquest. 

If you continue down Calle Castillo, you will reach the Shrine to Santa Ana, another emblematic building in La Puebla de los Infantes. When you finish your visit, stroll through the streets or relax in one of the bars and try the delicious local cuisine.
