Los Santos de Maimona

Los Santos de Maimona is a municipality with around 8,000 people, situated on the train line between Mérida and Sevilla as well as on the A-66 road between Gijón and Sevilla. The first human settlement in the area took place in the Chalcolithic period, around 2500 BCE, and appeared to be continual through the Bronze Age into the Roman period when those early settlements began to take shape as an actually town. It was conquered by the Moors in 712, and then conquered again by the Christians in 1240.
