Camporrobles

On the border with the plateau, vineyard, cereal and wool.

 

The village of Camporrobles is located on one of the old transhumance routes, which stopped at a spot where the lagoons - today dry - offered water and pasture. The oldest district, Paulete, dates back to the Middle Ages. In the 16th century the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción was built. At the beginning of the 20th century, industries such as the San Isidro Labrador flour mill appeared and in the middle of the century the railway arrived in the town. But the jewel of the municipality is prehistoric. In the 8th century B.C., the Iberians built a fortified settlement on top of the El Molónhill, where you can see the remains of walls and buildings. Centuries later, the site would be occupied by Muslim settlers who built one of the oldest mosques in Estern Spain.

The festive calendar of Camporrobles is rich. The town celebrates the traditional bonfires of San Antón in January, the patron saint's festival of Santa Águeda in February, the traditional Carnival, Easter, in which the young men turning 19 that year are the protagonists, the singing of the Mayos, the festival of San Isidro in May, the summer festivals and two pilgrimages.
