Much of the municipality is in the Sierra de Baza, within the natural park, where the Gor river originates. The Gor river flows from south to north through a deep and fertile canyon, excavated on the plateau between the basins of Guadix and Baza. At the bottom of this valley and on both sides of the river are ancient vegas arranged on terraces.
The land that now is occupied by the village has known human settlement from the Neanderthal man as evidenced by the numerous archaeological sites that have been exploited. There are remains that are ranging from the stage to the Muslim, through the Neolithic, Iberian, Roman and Byzantine Empire.
