Hacienda el Santiscal

The term "Santiscal" comes from a Roman country villa located in the grounds of the Hacienda that was discovered in the late 19th century. The known area comprises a peristyle, a swimming pool, water pipes and various mosaics among which figured the only issue with the representation of Venus and Adonis. The building and pavement indicate extensive use of the villa throughout the Roman Empire until the sixth century which accounts for the Visigoth Bulgarico tombstone, found in 1890. 

Story says there was once a knight called Juan de Armario. In 1485, when Ronda was laid to siege by the Christians, he was the first to enter the mine where the moors kept all their supplies and died in the venture. As a reward for his bravery, the King granted the knight’s sons five estates at the foot of Sierra del Santiscal mountain range, where they built what would become the family residence, today “Hacienda El Santiscal”. This beautiful fortified building has magnificent views to the Lake and its Nature Park thanks to its strategic location.

One of the most beautiful villages of Spain, as he told us the Spanish writer Azorín. Located on top of a spectacular rock cut, from which hung a multitude of white houses and a medieval Arab castle up with many monuments, historical and artistic, Arcos de la Frontera is one of the most prominent examples of the site height, as it occupies the summit and slopes of a valley at the foot of Guadalete River about 195 m elevation. Arcos is a city of unique beauty, known internationally and well worth a visit slowly, leisurely, savoring its streets, its steep slopes or a beautiful sunset from some of their viewpoints.

This is a solid limestone shaped by the action of water over the centuries it has given rise to numerous caves, chasms and gorges, some of them very spectacular.

The Park of Doñana is characterized by its great biological variety, with three major ecosystems: the marshes, shifting sand dunes and preserves. With its high horizontal, there was a transition from undulating topography of the 'boxes' to the marsh, which is the most remarkable landscape setting as a haven for many migratory birds. The park offers refuge for species in serious danger of extinction as the Iberian lynx or the imperial eagle.
