Benizar

The perfect corner

Rock culture

The first Prehistoric settlers were attracted by the springs and caves in this rugged area, where they found a place to shelter, and left a valuable legacy of rock-art paintings on the walls of Los Abrigos de Benizar, today declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.

Al-Andalus personality

Benizar was inhabited by the Iberians and Romans, but it was the Berbers who had a profound effect on these lands through livestock and agricultural development, establishing olive tree cultivation, grazing of segureña sheep, and designing the irregular layout of its streets.

The Castle protected the border

Benizar Castle was built in the 12th century on an almost impenetrable steep crag, making it a maximum security fortress in this border area with frequent conflicts.
