The union of four Moorish villages gives rise to Jubrique, a town in the Serrania de Ronda with a long tradition in the production of wines and spirits. Its whitewashed houses and narrow streets conform to the surface of the area, making the walk through Jubrique, a surprise around every corner. Discover the reminiscences of the Arab past, try their traditional spirits or roaming around or riding are just some of the reasons why Jubrique can be your next destination.
IN JUBRIQUE YOU CANNOT MISS
The Fountain of River Lavar was the public laundry and single point of water supply in the town in the past. However, their role remains as important in the village that will surprise you to see some neighbours who still come to collect water from this fountain.
The foodies will discover that Jubrique was one of the most important wine producers in the XVIII century, growing to sixty liquor factories. At the Museum of Popular Arts and Liquor, you can learn the history of the town and processes of grape production and manufacture of these traditional drinks.
Jubrique churches have an important historical and artistic value. We started with the picturesque church of St. Francis of Assisi. In its sacristy, we find the images of Virgen de la Candelaria of XVIII century and that of Jesus of Nazareth with natural hair. This church was built in the XVI century on an ancient mosque and is today one of the most emblematic buildings of the town.
Our next stop will take place in the chapel of the Santa Cruz del Choricillo. This temple traditionally harboured a single altar dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows, and accompanied by a revered Cruz. This chapel also stands out as the place of pilgrimage that the town celebrates in May.
The protagonist Castañuelo Hermitage is also a cross through which the residents of the municipality feel great devotion. This rural chapel was built on the estate of the same name, Finca del Castañuelo.
