The Cuevas de la Villa were built in the Moorish period, between the 12th and 13th centuries by drilling into the limestone and clay that make up the subsoil of the Barrio de La Villa. In the seventeenth century, when the houses and public buildings of the Plaza de la Villa were demolished due to its extension, the caves were blocked with rubble and it was not until the 70s of the 20th century, when they were rediscovered, emptied and interconnected by tunnels . Currently, the route is made up of 22 caves, around 1,200 square meters.

Over time they have been used as silos to store cereal, as ossuary and as cellars for the production and conservation of our wines. The visit to the cellar-cave allows us to know the elements for making wine such as trullos, piqueras, trulletas and jars.
