Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer this composition with the interesting church tower of the pretty village of Benaocaz, on the route of the white villages of the Sierra of the province of Cadiz (South of Spain), I hope you like, then some letters about the history of the villa.

Benaocaz is a Spanish municipality in the province of Cadiz, Andalusia. In 2005 it had 745 inhabitants. Its surface area is 70 km² and has a density of 10,74 hab / km². Its geographical coordinates are 36 ° 42 'N, 5 ° 25' W. It is situated at an altitude of 793 meters and 120 kilometers from the provincial capital, Cadiz. It is located in the Sierra del Endrinal, Tavizna south of the river, and is part of the White Towns of Andalusia. There are traces of human presence from prehistory (Sima of Veredilla [VI Millennium a.n.e.]) and then Iberian and Roman presence is attested. That era is the road that communicates Benaocaz with Ubrique, of the few that remain in the area. As a village was founded by the Arabs in 715 and was taken to the Christians in 1485 by Rodrigo Ponce de Leon, who also conquered Archite, Ubrique, Grazalema and Villaluenga del Rosario and the two castles Aznalmara (Tavizna) and Fatima or Cardela. All these villas and castles were already known before the Christian conquest by "The Seven Villas", renamed "Lordship of the Seven Towns" In 1490 it became the property of the same nobleman within the lordship of Villaluenga who gave him the Kings Catholics. It preserves the remains of the Moorish quarter with its cobbled old and has been declared a historic site. Virtually all of his term is located in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park.
