MONUMENTS

Alameda houses the mausoleum of the famous bandit José María "El Tempranillo". You can see it in the courtyard on the church of the Inmaculada Concepción.

The church of the Inmaculada Concepción is one of the most remarkable buildings in the town. Construction work started in the 18th century and it possesses three dressing rooms. Amongst its works of art, a statue of Christ on the cross and a valuable collection of oil paintings stand out.

Roman Thermal Baths dating back to the 1st and 3rd century A.D are one of the other cultural treasures of Alameda. They have been declared a National Monument and a Site of Cultural Interest. A Topic Center allows us to know the function of these old baths.

However, the presence of man in these lands dates back thousands of years, as testified by Alameda's Chalcolithic Necropolis, a complex of artificial caves created between the years 2500 to 2000 B.C. In its pits, lithic, ceramic and skeletal remains have been discovered.

In order to get a first hand look at the lives and customs of the country folk and merchants of the region, Alameda has a Museo de Antiguos Aperos and a Centro Temático del Campo Andaluz.
