An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

José María El Tempranillo Caves


Next to the Nuestra Señora de la Fuensanta Chapel in Corcoya are the José María El Tempranillo Caves. Of little depth and located in a site of great natural beauty, they have recently been restored.

As their current name indicates, they are the caves used by José María el Tempranillo to hide when he came to visit Our Lady of La Fuensanta, to whom he was deeply devoted, and the Santero, his confidante. An ideal place to hide in the depths of the countryside, it was here that El Tempranillo received a pardon from King Fernando VII in 1832.
