Our travel guide to Prado del Rey

Prado del Rey, the garden of the Sierra de Cádiz, is a beautiful town that is part of the Route of the White Villages. With Roman roots, it stands out for its artisanal leather goods industry, today constituting its main factor of production. In this Travel Guide to Prado del Rey you can find all the activities and the best travel tips for your trip.

Prado del Rey sinks its roots in the Roman city of Iptuci, an archaeological site of great interest declared of Cultural Interest. The existence of human settlements in this area has been confirmed from the Neolithic to the fifteenth century. Its era of greatest splendour was the Roman one, especially the first and second centuries A.D. Even so, the Phoenicians already exploited the salt mines in their surroundings, near the Cabeza de Hortales.

In its urban planning, similar to the model adopted in the American colonies, the linear planning of its streets is surprising. Perfectly drawn and parallel to each other, oriented from north to south and from east to west and bypassing the orographic slopes that characterise a town located between small hills.

Main Activities: Nature, Crafts, Culture.
