Rágol

Rágol

Found on the banks of the Andarax River, Rágol is surrounded by large eucalyptus trees and is famous for its grapes and raisins. It has about 315 inhabitants. The origins of the town are difficult to determine, although some 20 castles were established in the ninth century to colonize the Marchena area.

This simple model of a Mudejar church, with a single nave drawer plan, was not always so minimalistic. Built in 1530, it managed to survive the Moorish rebellion, various fires and an earthquake, until it was moved to another location. However, during this journey, it lost the back section of the sanctuary and the main chapel, and was reduced to this simple temple.

Festivals in Rágol are Cabalgata de Reyes Magos, Día de Andalucía, Semana Santa and Fiestas en Honor al Patron San Aguapito.
