Iznalloz information

There are prehistoric paintings and tools in the caves surrounding the village. The Iberian peoples are thought to have settled here.

The village sits on the banks of the River Cubillas and what was once on an important Roman road to Torraco (ancient Roman name for Tarragona) traversing via the south eastern coastline of the Iberian peninsula.

The people of Iznalloz attribute their origins to the Romans and call themselves Acatuccitanos, after Acatucci, the Roman name for the village. Roman imperial soldiers built a garrison on the hill in what is now the old quarter of the village and constructed a bridge over the river which remains in use. The origin of the modern name, Iznalloz, has its roots in the Arabic “Hisn Allauz” which means ‘Castle of Almond trees’. Only the ruins of the castle remain, but it formed part of the front line of Muslim defense during the latter days of the conquest of Spain. The village fell into Christian hands in 1486, after which Iznalloz and its neighbouring villages aided in the siege of Granada. As payment for their services the people of Iznalloz were exempt from various taxes.

Following the Catholic conquest of Granada, Iznalloz became an important centre for commerce and agriculture.

On the last day, there is another procession so the Virgen can return to her hermitage.
