The history of Castro de Filabres dates to the Roman era, although there are some vestiges of prehistoric times, particularly from the Copper Age. Remains of polished stone instruments with axes, known as “Lightning Stones” , have also been found, made with a material called diorite. The foundation of the town is framed between legend and reality.
Castro de Filabres is situated in a riverbed between the Sierra Alhamilla and the Sierra de Gádor, an ideal environment for nature lovers to enjoy rural tourism. In the whitewashed village, where the houses all have flat roofs, the most striking building is the Iglesia de la Virgen del Rosario, built in the Mudejar style. The town has about 120 inhabitants.
