La Granjuela – Guadiato Valley
La Granjuela is a town to the north of el Guadiato. Granjuela was originally a cortijo of Fuente Obejuna, first documented in 1579, which in the Modern Age attained the rank of village.
It can trace its origins back to 1476, when a group of inhabitants of Fuente Obejuna abandoned their village to escape the outrages committed by the commander of Calatrava Fernan Gomez de Guzman.
La Granjuela was and remained a village of Fuente Obejuna until 1817, the year when it, along with Blázquez, Esparragosa, Los Prados and Valsequillo formed the town of Cinco Aldeas, and later acquired its own individuality and its own municipality.
