Bácor



Bácor is a separate center town in the municipality of Guadix, located north of the Vega. The village is located in a great landscape with strong contrasts between the hills and gullies of the Bad-Lands and the  intensely green wooded valley. From historical point of view, it is abundant in prehistoric pottery and even Roman and Muslim. Its salt was important for the Catholic Kings, who united the castle and town. The town was granted to the family of Hernando Zafra, secretary of the Catholic Monarchs.
