Ecija information

Located midway between Seville and Cordoba in a valley of low hills, Ecija is home to several magnificent baroque churches, the towers of each glisten with brilliantly colored tiles which can be spied from far in the distance. There are also some splendid houses here which date back to the 18th century when the local nobility bought homes in the town. Many of the mansions are particularly distinctive for their flamboyant architecture displaying interesting shapes and patterns.

Unfortunately, a major earthquake in 1757 did considerable damage to many of the buildings; however the churches were restored - at a considerable cost.

Things to see include the Roman mosaic on the ayuntamiento while two of the most spectacular towers are on the Santa Maria church and the Iglesia de San Juan Bautista. The tourist office also just happens to be housed in a former palace with a fabulous portal in contrasting tints of marble, while the Museo Historico Municipal has a fine collection of artifacts in a serene setting of palms and patios. Another highlight is the impressive Palacio de Penaflor on Calle Castellar with a curved facade decorated with frescos and an elaborate baroque portal. Nearby is the San Gil Gothic-MudEjar church which is also worth a camera shot or two.

View of Ecija

The town of 38,000 has a beautiful municipal pool with bar/restaurant. The amenities are concentrated around the main Plaza. There is a planned 18 hole golf course. From Ecija is a vía verde (greenway) that runs northeast to Valchillon just south of Cordoba and southwest to Marchena. The Via Verde of the Countryside can be used by walkers, cyclists or horse riders.
