La Carolina

La Carolina
The Essential
A few kilometres south of the Parque Natural de Despeñaperros, La Carolina gets its name from the Sierra Morena settlement initiative brought in by Charles III (1767), which made this town the hub of several dispersed mountain communities. In Calle Jardines, a few of the original "Colonial" houses still remain. La Carolina's archaeological museum presents the Despeñaperros region's natural setting and charts its history, from Roman times (Cástulo) to the present day.
