Fuente Tojar Information

Since ancient times there has been a human presence in this locality. The most important archaeological site is the remains of an Iberian-Roman city. Remains of it can be visited in the Cerro de Las Cabezas.  This Iberian-Roman town received apparently the name of Iliturgicolis or Sucaelo. Economy was based on agriculture, livestock, metallurgical mining activities and commercial exchanges.

Fuente Tójar is cited by al-Idrisis, an Arab historian, as a small village which was the seventh station on the route form Cordoba to Almeria passing through Granada.

After the Conquest by Christians, the town was given to the military order of Calatrava in 1245 and it was joined to the town of Priego. Fuente Tójar was conquered again by Muslims but finally joined the Corona de Castilla in 1341 by Alfonso XI. In 1844, the Queen Isabel II gave permission for the town to be segregated from Priego.

Fiestas

Real Feria de Ntro. Patrón San Isidro Labrador. This fair takes place around 15th of May and during four days there are cultural, musical and religious events. In this festivity, we find one of the most unique and ancient traditions on the province of Córdoba, “los danzantes de San Isidro” (San Isidro Dancers), people in groups of eight and dressed in printed skirts and colorful paper hats dance on several occasions in front of San Isidro during the procession.

Fiesta de la Alcaparra. (Caper Festival) This festival is celebrated on the second weekend of August. First festival was celebrated in late 90’s and it was an idea of some friends who wanted to do a kind of tribute to all emigrants who had to leave the town looking for work. At first it was just a meeting of friends but now, with the Gastronomic-Cultural Association “Amigos de la Alcaparra” it is also a day to promote the caper.
