Periana History





The origin of Periana it is not contrasted, although Neolithic remains have been found in the Cerro de Alcolea and cave paintings in the Village of Marchamonas, as some traces of the passage of the Romans and Visigoths. At the time of Arab domination there was a farmhouse with two defensive settlements, including one called Pereiro, which led to its name, until 1761 when it gained independence and became considerate as municipality.

The so-called "Andalusian Earthquake" that took place on 25th December 1884 caused dozens of victims and destroyed almost the whole town, that is why it does not have buildings of great historical value, it is all the result of reconstruction. Its economy is currently based on olive crops and peach, considered by the most as the best in Spain.
