Pizarra Village - Valle del Guadalhorce

Pizarra is a typical valley village, the only one which is completely traversed by El Rio Guadalhorce river, featuring a green landscape with abundant fruit trees, citrus trees and vegetable gardens, dominated by the La Sierra del Hacho.

The city’s origins date back to the time of the Catholic Monarchs, and its most noteworthy monuments are St. Peter’s Church, the Count of Puerto Hermoso’s Palace and Virgin of La Fuensanta Chapel; to be found in Pizarra is a museum exhibiting the works of the painter Gino Hollander.

Pizarra History

The region must have been inhabited in Roman times, though insufficient relics exist to determine an exact period.

Its name appears in records for the first time at the end of the 15th century, when the Catholic Monarchs awarded land in "the Pizarra area" to Don Pedro Romero in return for capturing Alora.
