San Sebastián de los Ballesteros – Córdoba province

The municipality of San Sebastian de los Ballesteros is to be found between Fernan Nunez and La Carlota, in the Cordoba countryside, surrounded by fields of cereals and olive trees.

It appears that the name is due to two facts: first, these lands were known as Ballesteros y Gregorio before the arrival to the region of the Jesuits, and secondly, concerning names on the day that Philip III granted to their new owners the jurisdiction and dominion of this territory. Thus, the original toponym Ballesteros y Gregorio became the current name of San Sebastian de los Ballesteros.

The village has its origins in the purchase by the Jesuits of the area known as Los Ballesteros in the seventeenth century.

In 1767 the site would revert to state ownership due to the expulsion of the Order of the Jesuits, and in 1768 Nueva Poblacion Carolina was created there, being populated by people coming from Central Europe. The village was divided into three departments: San Sebastian, Cañada de Gregorio and Majada Alta.
