There is evidence that La Gineta, in its strategic position overlooking a wide area of surrounding countryside, has witnesed some key moments in Spanish history.
For example, the Civil War (of 1936-39) has left its mark on the farmhouse – which was built towards the end of the nineteenth century – with bullet marks on the window grilles and an underground storage mine.
On the hill of La Gineta, there are also high stone walls and a cross commemorating the soldiers killed there. Moreover, there is ample archaeological evidence to suggest that there was once an Iberian-Roman settlement on this site.
You are strongly recommended to take a pleasant stroll along the riverside and also to climb up to the summit of La Gineta, from which you can enjoy magnificent panoramic views.
