Peñaflor

The hermitage of Santos Mártires is architecturally unique and sits on a Roman hypogaea tomb.

Peñaflor The name Peñaflor comes from the legend that states that when saints Críspulo and Restituto died as martyrs in the 11th century, a flower (flor) bloomed from the rock (peña) that formed their blood. The hermitage of Santos Mártires (on the right) was built there. It is architecturally unique and sits on a Roman hypogaea tomb. It has a rectangular layout with two square rooms, one of which is excavated in the rock, and on which the belfry is built. The main monuments of Peñaflor date from the 18th century when the town belonged to the Marquises of Peñaflor: the Parish Church of San Pedro, the convent of San Luis and the old Consistorial Houses. Peñaflor is also well known for its hermitages and its civil architecture, such as the Palatial House, the Parish House and the Flour Factory. Its unique traditional architecture is especially notable in the Calle de las Cuevas, given this name because of the cuevas (caves) that are incorporated into the structure of the houses. Finally, going back to its earliest times we find the Phoenician site of Higuerón and the remains of the ancient Roman city of Celti.
