Loja was considered the door to the kingdom of Granada, due to its position between two mountain ranges, which appear as strong bastions.

Horadada, Lagunillas, Sopalmillo, Ranchuelo and Pajonares, are very attractive places for hunters, archaeologists and pot-holers. The mountains of North, Hacho and Tiravira tower above the town and from the top you can enjoy a wonderful view the surrounding countryside.

catholic Queen Isabella. Howeer, its Islamic heritage can be felt whilst wandering in the quarter of the Alcazaba, or fortress. The Christians erected grandiose temples and civil buildings, and, in the 19th century, the Narváez
family embellished the town with palaces and gardens.
