Lebrija is a city that lies within the province of Seville, located in the Lower Guadalquivir and bordering the province of Cádiz, rising magnificently above wetlands, vineyards and potteries and providing the horizon for the Jerez Region.

Throughout its long history Lebrija has been a territory occupied by a series of different cultures, which, from an archaeological and ethnographic point of view, characterizes it as one of the most interesting in Lower Andalusia.

The first settlements in Lebrija date from prehistoric times with Chalcolithic remains discovered in the area. Romans and Muslims occupied the city until the thirteenth century when the Christian reconquest took place. All these different cultures left behind a rich architectural legacy in the city, most worthy of mention being thirteenth century Almohad castle, the sixteenth century Vera Cruz chapel and the late thirteenth century Santa María de la Oliva church.

Another of the treasures of Lebrija is its cuisine. Some of its traditional dishes include habas corchas, snails or ajo refrito. Exquisite dishes whose flavour is enhanced when accompanied by a glass of sherry.

Lebrija is the birthplace of Antonio de Lebrija, author of the first Spanish Grammar in 1492, and the seafarer Juan Díaz de Solís, who discovered the River Plate. Similarly, the flamenco guitarist and singer Juan Peña El Lebrijano and the pianist David Peña Dorantes were also born here, thus adding to the town’s international fame.
