Seville enchants

The fountain is of a rustic nature and can be found on the estate of the same name in a setting of great environmental value three kilometres from the town. It is located between the towns of Olivares and Salteras. It can be accessed by the Alcalá road parallel to the road to the Aljarafesa deposits, 1 km from the road from Salteras to Olivares. 

Built in pink marble and in the shape of an octagonal prism, this was the tank where water from the Sierra de San Pablo was collected to supply the population. It was built in 1875 by the Sevillian architect Juan Talavera, and was completed in 1979 with the construction of the washroom, of which the façade and the pavement pillar remain.

The monument to Mairena del Alcor’s Old Fair, made in 1982, is a sculpture located on the fairgrounds, made by the local artist brothers Antonio and Jesús Gavira Alba.

Las Pilas is located at the intersection of Avenida de Andalucía and Calle del Matadero. The washing place is the only one of its kind in the province of Seville. The architect took ingenous advantage of a not very large corner. As described by P.A.

This late 18th-century church is dedicated to Our Lady of Immaculate Conception. It also ecclesiastically depends on the parish of Our Lady of Pure Conception. In 1887, it was also used as a water deposit. Until the Spanish Civil War, it was used as public baths. It then served as a water supply station for irrigation purposes.

Its origin is possibly due to a public urban improvement initiative implemented around 1927. It consists of a lower basin or pool with an octagonal shape and straight walls, built in red jasper stone, supporting a central square column, where the taps that supply water to the fountain are located. 

La Mezquitilla is located in the heart of the Sierra Sur of Seville, bordering the provinces of Cadiz and Malaga. It belongs to the municipality of El Saucejo. It has 241 inhabitants and is 2km away from El Saucejo.
