El teatro debe su nombre a Juan Bernabé Castell, fundador del teatro lebrijano.

The Sacristy of the Nuestra Señora de la Oliva Parish Church, built between the 13th and 16th centuries, was designed by Hernán Ruíz II in 1568. It has been adapted to house a museum of its artistic treasures.

This art gallery seeks to publicise the works of famous artists and promote art. It has several rooms and itineraries, from a guided tour of temporary exhibitions or Roman Lebrija to artistic interventions in this town. The tour is given by experts in the subject.

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. 

The Plaza or Mercado de Abastos was built in 1934. It follows in the tradition of municipal food markets that existed since the Middle Ages. There is written evidence that butcher and fishmonger’s shops existed since the late Middle Ages. The town council would lease the stalls on an annual basis so people could purchase food.

The original shrine, of which only the chapel remains, was from the 13th century. It was renovated in the 14th century with the addition of the sacristy and the portal. It was later renovated again in the 18th century. It has been restored in 1842, 1861, 1887 and 1920. Despite these works, it has maintained its Mudejar-style.
