Guadalcanal

The municipality of Guadalcanal is located in the far north of the province of Sevilla, being adjacent to the Autonomous Community of Extremadura. It belongs to the Sierra Norte region of Sevilla, including part of its term in the natural park of the same name. The village is situated in a valley between the Sierra del Viento (north) and Sierra del Agua (south).

The archaeological remains found in the caves of San Francisco and Santiago, provide us evidence of settlements in the Neolithic. Archaeology also offers Roman ruins, as are the remains of a Roman road on the right bank of the stream of Arc (for these lands ran the Roman road from Híspalis to Emérita) or the sarcophagus found in Santa Marina farm, no doubt the most significant of the archaeology in the period.

Guadalcanal founding dates back to the first Iberian settlements, which gave the name of Tereses, Tereja and some have even said that it was Canani. Its current name comes directly from Arabic Guad-al-Kanal.
