26 Mar Villanueva de Córdoba, a quiet and nice place
A quiet, relaxed, full of nature place, rcih in heritage, culture and excellent gastronomy. It´s Villanueva de Córdoba, a town where you can disconnect from the routine.
The visit must begins at its immense Grassland and its interpretation center. The Grassland ecological richness is impressive and there Iberian pigs live in freedom. They give one of the best Iberian acorn-fed hams you will taste in your whole life. The Iberian ham is one of the main claims of Villanueva gastronomy but you should also taste salmorejo jarote, fried piglet as well as rosquillas and cagajones.
Returning to grassland, another of the experiences that we recommend in this place: complete how the stars shine. In fact, the region of Los Pedroches in which this town is located is Startlight destination.
If you walk through the village, you will discover its rich heritage. In this sense, a unique church stands out in Andalusia, the Church of San Miguel. Its imposing tower, of 35 meters, is its main characteristic. Town Hall building, from the s. XVIII, it´s very important too.
