El Viso

The thin tower of red brick represents the focal point of the urban centre, which has a star-shaped form, with streets centring on the parish church, the Iglesia de la Encarnación, the spiritual heart of El Viso.

In July, during the celebrations in honour of Santa Ana, the village emulates Pamplona, releasing young bulls into the streets, giving rise to a great deal of emotion and more than a few near misses. 

 

  • The village is located in the central area of Los Pedroches, along the C-411 road.
  • Distance from Córdoba: 85 km.
  • Altitude: 575 m. 
  • Surface area: 252.6 km2.

El Viso probably arose in the middle of the 14th century, and was known as Casas de Don Adame up until the middle of the 15th century.

The locality formed a part of the estate and countship of Santa Eufemia, becoming the most prosperous village in this domain.
