El Madroño

The municipality of El Madroño is situated in the extreme northwest of the province of Seville, being bordered with Huelva. It sits among the foothills of Sierra Morena. Its population in 1996 amounted to 402 people, half of whom lived in the urban centre. Within the municipality are the villages of El Alamo and Villargordo.

Its name comes from the large amount of strawberries found in the area where the first settlement began. Until 1921it was under the jurisdiction of El Castillo de las Guardas . In this year it was constituted as an independent municipality. The villages of El Alamo, Anton Juan, Juan Gallego and Villagordo are all under its jurisdiction.

Human presence in this land dates back to prehistoric times. Since ancient times, man has exploited the mineral wealth of the region, as in the cases of the Tartessions, Phoenicians and Romans.

In the Middle Ages, the area was home to several villages devoted to the raising of cattle.
