Priego Historical Center

The Urban Center is located on a high plateau at an altitude of about 650 meters, dominating a fertile Vega (Río Salado), closed by the various foothills of the Sierras Subbéticas. Its most significant altitudes are: Llano del Castillo, 652.0 m.; Paseo de Colombia, 650.0 m.; Fountain of the King, 662.5 m.; Town Hall Square, 655.0 m.

In the analysis of the urban structure we observe how there is a large part of the city that corresponds to a historical occupation until the beginning of the 20th century and another one of later development that is perfectly differentiated.

The road network in general is irregular, adapting to the differences in elevations of the land, highlighting the layout of the Barrio de la Villa where it becomes extremely narrow, appearing very pictorial scenes. Calle Río, Carrera de Álvarez and Carrera de las Monjas are wider and have a stately character determined by the character of the palatial houses that make it up. The balcony of the Adarve comes to delimit the Barrio de la Villa, forming the natural limit of the cut on the fertile plain, allowing the admiration of the surrounding landscape.

Closed block typology with uneven roads due to the irregularities of the terrain, typically medieval, with narrow and winding streets, and a subdivision that usually gives narrow and deep formation divisions, with a patio or plot corralón. Small blocks in Barrio de la Villa, and larger blocks in the developments from the 17th to 19th centuries (with somewhat larger streets). More regular plot in the growths to the south and west, on the other side of the crossing of the Loja highway. Read more…
