Nestled in the Sierra Morena and surrounded by the largest holm oak forest in Europe is Villanueva de Córdoba. Historically it has always served as a crossroads, since the city was born as a result of the "Camino del Armillat", an important road at the time of the Caliphate that connected Cordoba to Toledo.

If you are looking for somewhere to get away from it all and where you can enjoy good food, Villanueva de Córdoba is the place for you. These magnificent products, like organic olive oil or famous Iberian ham, both of which have their own Denomination of Origin, can be traced to the natural environment that surrounds the city.

Organise a route through the woodland and discover its unique landscape, while admiring its flora and fauna in addition to its impressive livestock. A veritable experience!

The city also boasts an extensive cultural heritage. It is home to numerous religious buildings that are worthy of a visit, such as the Church of San Sebastián, the Church of the Dulce Nombre de Jesús or the Church of San Miguel Arcángel, as well as other civil buildings such as the House of Aníbal González, the Town Hall of Villanueva de Córdoba or the Former Courthouse.
