Écija
The Essential
Interesting
In the large depression in the Bética mountain range and on the left bank of the River Genil, you can make out the shape of the old Roman town of Astigi with its eleven vertical towers. Écija became very prosperous, particularly in the 18C, resulting in the construction of its fine palaces, churches and convents, and contributing to its embellishment. The Baroque style of Écija was once extremely influential in the region. Today, this pleasant town is reputed to be the hottest in Andalusia, with temperatures reaching up to 50°C in the shade in summer.
