Heritage, art, industry, bullfighting and shopping. Linares is one of the most active cities in Andalusia. It owns a large collection of monuments and has a strong bullfighting and music tradition.
The historic part of the city is located near St María’s church, the main monument in Linares. The mining growth in the 20th century provoked an unstoppable urban development and economic thrust, which are responsible for the construction of a big part of our monuments and architecture. During the 19th century the plan of the modern city that still remains was created.
