Andújar is the leading olive-growing town in Spain. The former Iberian settlement of Isturgis was occupied by the Romans, then the Moors, who built the monumental 9C ramparts, and was finally reconquered by Ferdinand III of Castile in 1225. Today, Andújar retains its winding, paved alleyways and old buildings, despite being a major agricultural centre. Highlights here include its fine pottery, delicious cuisine and the Parque Natural de la Sierra de Andújar.
