Cuevas Bajas is located in Malaga Region , Andalucia

The town of Cuevas Bajas, whose name came from several caves located on the outskirts, is located in a small valley on the riverside of the River Genal.

You can walk along the banks of the river Genil, taking in the recently restored 19th century Noria de la Aceña (Wheel of the Aceña); visit the Altos de San Antón, where you can get great panoramic views of the area; or see the medieval villages of La Moheda and Cedron, and the Huertas del Marques (the Marquess' kitchen gardens) with their ancient irrigation systems which have remained since the Arab era.

Cuevas Bajas Information

 

The area in which is located Cuevas Bajas, has historical ancestry from the Paleolithic period (40,000 BC), as evidenced by the tools found in the nearby Cueva de Belda and on the terraces of the river Genil, what indicates the existence of a primitive population of hunters and fishermen.

During Roman times, around s. II, near the present town, a Roman road went through the town and it was called Via Antoniana. Romans dedicated this land by the Singilis river (Genil on its current name).

From this period we can find lots of remains of Roman villas standing out as civil engineering works like the remains of the bridge over the Arroyo de las Pozas, the bathhouses in the so-called Villa Del Burriana, and remains of some bathrooms in the place called "Baños de Escobar".

During the Middle Ages, Cuevas Bajas and Cuevas Altas were called Cuevas de Belda. They were two Muslim villages that were conquered by the Infante of Antequera Pedro de Narváez in 1426.
