MUST-SEE SIGHTS IN ALMARGEN
The Roman necropolis (graveyard) in Sierra de Rebollo is testimony to the historical importance of the municipality. In addition to this site are the Roman thermal baths in the Sierra de Cañete la Real and other archaeological sites dating back to the Moors, the Romanized Iberians and the Copper Age.
Many of the items found in these sites can be seen in the Municipal Museum (which has an interpretive centre called 'Tartessos in the Guadalteba') whose most significant exhibits are the phallic fertility idol, the engraved Tartessos stile and the oldest bronze sword in the province of Malaga.
The Church of the Immaculate Conception (16th-17th centuries) is an interesting fusion of styles: from its Mudejar craftsmanship to its Gothic tableaux, with its mannerist facade and the baroque bell gable on the outside.
