Herrera

The municipality of Herrera is situated in the southeastern area of the province of Seville, being adjacent to Cordoba. It is within the boundaries of La Campina, but close to la Sierra Sur.

The municipality limits with Écija, Estepa, Puente Genil y Marinaleda.

The origin of the name is uncertain, although it may derive from a place called “Las Herrerias”, alluding to the existence of iron mines.

Archaeological sites have revealed human settlements from the Late Bronze Age and also Iberian settlements.

During Roman times there apparently existed within the larger population centre a smaller village called Pagus Sigilensis.

From the period of Al-Andalus there is no news of Herrerra. After the Christian conquest it passed into the hands of the Military Order of Santiago and later to the Marquis of Estepa.
