La Rábita Information

La Rabita landscape Jaen Andalucia

Its origin, as its name “ribat” (Islamic religious-military construction), goes back to the Muslim era, during which it was called Asbatit or Asbit.

During the Middle Ages, it was one of the most important villages of the territory as it was located on the border with the Kingdom of Granada and they could control the road from Granada to Córdoba.

At the end of the 9th century, the conflict between Arabs and Muladies provoked the fragmentation of the territory. Ibn Mastana, governor of the strongholds located between Jaén and Córdoba and one of the main leaders of the Muladíes followers of Omar ibn Hafsún received the support of the Banu Asin, who remained in fact independent until they were dominated by the caliph of al-Ándalus Abd al-Rahman III.

Conquered Alcalá on August 15th, 1341 by Alfonso XI de Castilla, the territory gradually lost its strategic value, but this did not make the enclave disappear and in 1826 there are references to "Alcalá la Real with its villages of Frailes, Charilla, Santa Ana and La Rábita".
