Pizarra information

Pizarra is a typical valley village, the only one which is completely traversed by the River Guadalhorce, featuring a green landscape with abundant fruit trees and vegetable gardens, dominated by La Sierra del Hacho. The village’s origins date back to the time of the Catholic Monarchs, and its most noteworthy monuments are Saint Peter’s Church, the Count of Puerto Hermoso’s Palace and Virgin of The Fuensanta Chapel; also to be found in Pizarra is a museum exhibiting the works of the painter Gino Hollander.


The region must have been inhabited in Roman era, though insufficient relics exist to determine an exact period. Its name appears in records for the first time at the end of the 15th century, when the Catholic Monarchs awarded land in "the Pizarra area" to Don Pedro Romero in return for capturing Alora.
