Fuentes de Andalucía
Fuentes de Andalucía
The municipality of Fuentes de Andalucia sits in the comarca de la Campiña, being located in the eastern part of the province of Seville which is adjacent to that of Cordoba.
Settlements have been known here since prehistoric times, by the archaeological sites found at the Cerros de San Pedro.
During the Roman period it was a very populace area, which would lead us to believe it was a population centre of some importance. The most important remains are those of Cortijo del Notario, Cortijo de la Fuente del Cabo and those in the town itself. In the environs of Fuentes was situated the village of Obucula.
Fuentes was conquered by the Christians in the thirteenth century. It was under the jurisdiction of Carmona until independence in the fourteenth century.
In the XVI century the Fuentes reached its peak and began to acquire architectural significance, reaching its prominence in the eighteenth century.
