An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Cortijo Torre de la Reina


The place known today as Cortijo Torre de la Reina was once the rearguard settlement of one of the camps of King Fernando III el Santo during the conquest of Seville. In the late 13th and early 14th centuries it was owned by Queen María de Molina, which is why the building is called Torre de la Reina (Queen's Tower).

The fortress is of great interest in that, besides being a royal possession, it is the only rural building from this period in the vicinity of Seville and it is the only cortijo in Spain to have been declared a national historic-artistic monument since 1977. Today it is a Hotel.
