Semana Santa Estepa

Seville enchants

Pre-Roman cyclopean construction. The origin and role of El Higuerón are not entirely clear. Concerning its origin, it is very likely that it was built during the Iberian-Turdetan period. It can be dated between the 5th and 2nd centuries BC.

The last stretch of the River Guadalquivir’s right bank has been dotted with settlements and cities since ancient times because the river provided resources and a communication route that enabled trade and contact between the inhabitants of the territory.

The Lebrija youth house was restored and integrated into several archaeological remains. It consists of two buildings separated by a courtyard. The main façade has been preserved, while the one in the back has been renovated. 

This building was built in 1307 and was originally the supply house of the Master of the Order of Santiago.

Architecturally, it is a slightly trapezoid-shaped ashlar construction. It consists of two floors, each of them formed by a nave roofed with a wooden framework.

In this museum we can find a wide variety of animals native to the area, stuffed by the town's taxidermist Rafael Diaz Contiene, as well as archaeological remains discovered in various excavations of the Castle.

Orippo was a Roman city with Turdetan origins. It is mentioned in the VII Itinerary of Antoninus (Via Augusta), placing it between Ugia (Torre Alocaz, Utrera) and Hispalis (Seville), on the banks of the ancient Ligustine Lake. It is also mentioned in the Vicarello Goblets.

Different archaeological artefacts and items of historical value are preserved and exhibited inside Burguillos’ Town Hall, including niches for religious images, millstones, roofing tiles, shafts and capitals.
