ORCHARD VILLAGES

 

      

 

 

 

“Pagos de Huerta” represent a unique asset of Palma del Río. It is of ancient settlements of peasants who lived in the vicinity of their gardens. They represent the history of the municipality and its main value is their uniqueness in the Iberian orography, since they emerged as a result of the meanders of silty grounds on the banks of the guadalquivir and genil rivers.

At present much of the same has been lost, being mainly the best preserved for the use and pleasure of the families who are their owners. However, some like the Pedro Díaz or La Graja stand out for their good preservation, being a clear example of life that took place there.

“Pagos de Huerta” had a greater role in other times. Many families lived in these holdings forming small settlements where were all the basic necesitéis. In 1950, these payments had about 1.800 inhabitants.

Houses have changed a lot, but apparently some preserved the original structure. However, the old buildings are in poor condition.
