Maracena

Located close to Granada City, Maracena is a predominantly agricultural village. Historically, Maratiena, as it was then known, was an important Roman settlement; it continued to be so during the Moorish era, when it was known as Marasana. Today, the most important building in Maracena is la Iglesia de la Encarnación, a church established in the 16th century by the Catholic Monarchs (Isabella and Ferdinand).
