Chauchina, Vega de Granada
Chauchina can be found in the Vega of Granada, between poplar groves and well cared for orchards, on the banks of the river Genil. This natural enclave along the riverbanks offers excellent conditions for hiking around Chauchina itself, together with nearby Romilla and Romilla La Nueva. The town sits in an agricultural landscape, with many tobacco dryers, some still in use, these have been some of the most important buildings in the area, next to the farmhouses and farmsteads. It is also striking geometric parcel of land, this being the result of successive divisions of the land.
Coupled with the historical fate of all the Vega of Granada, the township until the eighteenth century was the union of two completely distinct neighborhoods, La Chauchina de Arriba and La Chauchina de Abajo. (upper and lower Chauchina)
Iglesia Parroquial (Parish church, XVI century).
Ermita de la Virgen del Espino. (convent)
