Lora de Estepa information

The area surrounding Lora de Estepa has been inhabited by humans since the Paleolithic times. Local caves were used as tombs during the Copper Age and later Tartessos and Iberian cultures settled in the region.

The area was eventually conquered and colonized by Romans. It has been speculated that Lora de Estepa might have been the Roman town of "Lauro" that is mentioned by Florus in his Epitome of Roman history, Book 2. If this identification is correct, Lora de Estepa was the site of an important battle of Caesar's Civil War in 45 BC, during which Caesarian forces cornered and killed Gnaeus Pompeius the Younger, son of Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus. Equating Lauro with Lora de Estepa is, however, still speculative and strongly disputed among historians because there are other historians who say that this battle could have taken place near Casariche or in Ronda. In any case, the Roman town at Lora de Estepa was known as "Olaurum" in the 1st century and served as a regional hub for communication and trade. During the late antiquity (4th-7th century) Olaurum was largely abandoned, as its population was ruralized and moved to numerous minor hamlets at the nearby village.

After the Umayyad conquest of Hispania, the local settlement came to be known as "Al-auriat". Little is known of the town's history under Muslim rule, though the whole region was only sparsely inhabited during this time. The town was conquered by the Christians in 1250 and given to the Order of Santiago, but remained a contested war zone until the Christian conquest of Antequera in 1410. Afterwards, the region's population increased again and by the 16th century the local town was known as "Lorilla" or "Lora Menor".

Fiestas

Traditionally the "Fair of the tapa" is celebrated in the middle of summer where the neighbors prepare typical foods of the area.

Feria of San Miguel Arcángel. Which takes place at the end of September.

Romería de San Marcos. It takes place on the 25th of April and it’s a day to enjoy in the countryside with family and friends.
