Ntra. Sra. de la Aurora Church
This church was originally the 15th century San Nicasio chapel. It was built on an ancient mosque following the Christian reconquest and was renovated in the 18th century by Juan de Dios Santaella. It has a rectangular floor plan and on its interior, it is difficult to find free space given its profound Baroque décor. As a tradition, the La Aurora brotherhood tours the town every Saturday singing traditional folk songs.

Arco de la Villa Arch
A fortified wall once surrounded Utrera, which had several gateways into the citadel. Many of them did not survive until the present day, while others are now small archaeological remains. The best preserved is undoubtedly the Arco de la Villa arch, which continues to represent the end of Utrera’s historic centre and the start of the town’s surrounding neighbourhoods.

Iglesia de San Juan Bautista (church)
The town’s oldest church is found in the picturesque Santa María la Mayor square, in the heart of the barrio del Cerro. The church was founded in the 17th century by the bishop of Cabra, Bacauda (prelate of Cabra, participant in the 8th Toledo Council), and offers us an usual piece. It is an altar stone (in the shape of a pilaster), which consecrates the church to Santa María on 30th May of the era 688 (650 AD) using Gothic characters. It is the oldest inscribed devotion to Mary in the diocese of Córdoba, and one of very few in Andalusia.

Complejo Endorréico (Endorheic Area) Nature Reserve in Utrera
Like the other wetlands located in the strip between the Baetic mountain ranges and the depression of the Guadalquivir, this complex is a wetland formed by three shallow lakes: Zarracatín, Arjona and Alcaparrosa. Their marked seasonal character means they depend on direct rainfall so they are usually dry in summer or during periods of continued drought. Originally, the wetland landscape was full of holm oaks (carrascas) along with wild olive trees, carob trees and gall oaks. Indeed, the historic succession of different civilisations has led to practically all of the natural vegetation of this land disappearing so the land can be used for intensive farming. Hence the lakes are fully surrounded by crops. Only remnants of natural vegetation remain near to the lake, notably tamarisk, rushes, bulrushes and reeds. Thanks to their location, these lakes are of a high environmental value for birdlife, being a key location for sustenance, reproduction and rest during the migrations of numerous aquatic birds. There is an abundance of anatidae and rallidae, especially the common coot, with the occasional presence of ruddy ducks, flamingos and Western swamphens.

The façade is neoclassical and the nave features barrel vaults and lunettes, and a hemispherical ceiling over the crossing with the Patron saints’ emblems on the pendentives. The main altarpiece is modern and is dominated by the Corazón de Jesús sculpture. A small, early seventeenth-century sculpture of the Immaculate Conception from the Montañés studio stands to the right and a sculpture of Saint John of Nepomuk to the left. A painting of Saint Philip Neri can be observed in the attic of the retablo.

Puente Povedano Trail
Access to this trail starts from a fork to the left on the CO-751 road next to a small sign to signpost Povedano bridge. From this point, we enter a country lane which descends with bends and can be done on foot, bike or by vehicle (500m from the start of this earth track, there is a farmhouse with a flat area of land where you can leave your vehicle). A few metres further on, we find a small waterwheel, and then, on our right there is a farmhouse. The entire trail takes us through an area of olive groves with gentle hills that rise and fall, and beautiful views of the Sierra de Aras mountain range. We will continue to head right, always along an earth track, and following the course of the Anzur river until we reach Povedano bridge. If we want to, we can climb the same path a little further and take in the views of this 16th century bridge until reaching the Sordillo well. This trail ends here, returning by the same route back to the starting point. This bridge enabled travellers heading to or departing from Lucena to cross the Anzur river at this […]

Iglesia de Ntra. Sra. de Guadalupe (church)
An ancient 16th century Dominican convent, baroque in style, which worships the Virgen de Guadalupe, Baena’s patron saint. It has a large central nave, with no crossing, and two side naves, separated by semi-circular arches. The 16th century Mudejar coffered ceiling that covers the main altar is quite remarkable: it is the only one of its kind in the whole province. The polychromed wooden altarpiece from the second third of the 18th century is also impressive. The icon of Cristo de la Sangre is worthy of mentioning, dating back to the 17th century and declared as being a cultural asset to Andalusia in 1988. According to professor Hernández Díaz, “it is a masterly piece”, which must be attributable to the García brothers.
