Escacena del Campo

A village located in the Comarca del Condado, east of the province. Its landscape is formed from rich earth ideal for cereal agriculture, vineyards and olive groves.

Bordering municipalities: El Madroño, Aznalcóllar, Sanlúcar la Mayor, Castilleja del Campo, Chucena, Manzanilla, Paterna del Campo y Berrocal.

Prehistoric remains have been discovered in the area, which indicate civilisations existed long before the Roman occupation. These remains are from the Bronze age, the Turdetani (an ancient (pre-Roman people of the Iberian Peninsula) the Phoenicians and the Carthaginians. However, no one can speak of Escacena without referring to Tejada, a Roman city known as also known as Ituci, and of comparable importance to Italica. Ituci is believed to have been the wife of Trajan, the famous Andalusian who became Roman Emperor par excellence. Tejada saw the growth of smaller settlements around it; however, for no apparent reason it was deserted or depopulated and became an empty city that inherited wealth, crops, livestock.
