Villanueva del Rosario is a town in the district of Nororma, in the province of Málaga, located next to an imposing mountain front formed by the sierra de Camarolos and the sierra del Jobo.
The natural saucedeño (people from Villanueva del Rosario) setting is richly varied, with beautiful landscapes, caves, sites and many other active tourism attractions.
VILLANUEVA DEL ROSARIO IS NOT TO BE MISSED
Important Visigoth remains have been found in the borough of Villanueva del Rosario. Close to the town centre, a number of very interesting Visigoth necropolises have been found.
Also of note are the ruins found on the Finca del Tardón and on the Peñón del Oso. Both sites dating back to the Copper Age.
Places to visit in the saucedeño town include the parish church, the Rincón and de los Escalones sites, the Fuente Vieja (Old Fountain), the Casa Burguesa and other beautiful examples of local Andalusian architecture.
The hermitage of Nuestra Señora del Rosario, dedicated to the patron saint of the village, lies between the sites of the Nacimiento and Hondoneros.
