The town hall is an 18C brick building with a restrained, well-proportioned façade. On the left is a lovely 17C stone fountain called the Pilar de los Cuatro Caños (fountain with four spouts).
The source of the Río Andarax is in a pleasant site among thick pinewoods laid out for picnicking.
The parish church is a 16C brick building. In the nave, note the fine Baroque altarpiece adorning the high altar, and an Immaculate Conception by Alonso Cano (1601-67), a painter from Granada and a contemporary of Zurbarán and Velásquez.
