Fernán Núñez is situated to the south of the province of Cordoba (Andalucia, Spain), in Campina, in open countryside.The municipality limits with Córdoba, Montemayor y La Rambla.

It lies at a distance from the capital of 30 kilometres and at an altitude of 323 metres above sea level. The area of the municipality is just over 30.3 square kilometres and it has a population of about 9,502 inhabitants. (2006)

Fernán Núñez is situated in the comarca of Campina Sur, Cordoba, characterized by rolling hills, planted with corn that resembles a rolling sea, with some smaller plantations of olive grove. The intensive agricultural use which these lands have undergone since ancient times has given the area it’s the current landscape, endless open fields, devoid of trees or other vegetation.

In ancient times it was part of the Ibero-Roman city of “Ulia.”
The origin of the current name dates from the thirteenth century, when the Christians conquered these lands and the name was one of those given to a Muslim lookout tower located there.
It was founded in 1382, under the stewardship of Don Diego Gutierrez de los Rios, under the privilege of Juan 1st.

Remaining in the hands of Gutierrez de los Rios, it was constituted el Condad in 1639 and then Ducado in 1815, according to qualifications awarded by Ferdinand VII in favor of Carlos Jose Gutierrez de los Rios.
