Moraleda de Zafayona

Moraleda de Zafayona is to be found in the west of the province of Granada, 36 km distant. It falls under the jurisdiction of Alhama de Granada, 22 km away.

Moraleda de Zafayona has an annexe which is Loreto. The administrative limits of the municipality are: to the west: Huétor Tájar, to the northwest: Villanueva de Mesia, to the north-northeast: Íllora, to the east: Pinos Puente, to the southeast: Salar and Cacín, and to the southwest: Chimeneas.

This town, whose name has long been associated with silk production, has been linked historically to Loja, under whose jurisdiction it fell for many years.

Sitting approximately halfway between the regions of La Vega and the ancient Temple, it shares a common history with Alhama and Loja. The municipality, through the development of history, like all of this area of Western Granada, has seen the Roman Empire, the long Muslim rule, the further Christianization after the wars of Granada, and in the nineteenth century, the presence in their lands of Napoleon’s troops during the War of Independence.
