Cogollos de Guadix
Cogollos de Guadix, Guadix Region
Cogollos de Guadix is located on the northern edge of the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, a magnificent backdrop shared with other mountain towns and villages of this area which the Arabs called el Sened. Its Arab past can be seen in the layout of its streets, which form a singular urban area, where stands the Iglesia Parroquial de Santa Maria de la Anunciacion (Parish Church of St. Mary of the Annunciation).
On the outskirts of Cogollos de Guadix remains of the remote Argaric culture have been well documented, this having been established after the Iberian-Roman settlement era. It was found to be a little archeological treasure trove for years, with finds of jewels and coins from Punic, Roman and Visigoth times. Although during the early Middle Ages Christians settled in various enclaves around the region, and worshipped in San Marcos and San Pedro, this population would gradually decrease, and disappear completely during the Nazari Kingdom. After the Reconquest, Cogollos was ceded to the Marquis of Villena, in whose hands it remained until the abolition of estates in the nineteenth century.
