Main information

Agron in Granada is apparently of Arab origin and is located in the Granada Temple region. The term Quempe Temple is composed of the Latin voice Campus, (field) and the anthroponym of the Arab tribe Qays. The presence of the Watchtower corroborates this story, as well as archaeological remains, little studied, until now. But its history dates back to prehistoric settlements. Its character must have been defensive, as befitted the settlements located on buttes that dominated plains.

It comes from the Qaysic Arab tribe, perhaps those who came to Bali in 741, and who settled in this area that we now call Temple.

Its current location does not coincide, however, with medieval Agrum, which would undoubtedly correspond to what is now known as Agron el Viejo. These remains can still be discovered on a small hill about three or four kilometers from the town. Starting in 1492, with the reconquest of the Kingdom of Granada by the Catholic Monarchs, it would become part of the Crown. Agron in Granada would reach a later development with the arrival of new settlers from other Spanish kingdoms.

Due to the towns’ agricultural nature there is not a lot in the way of local handicrafts, however some of the older members of the community still work with esparto and the village also produces small sculptures. The fertile land of Agron in Granada has allowed the town to flourish agriculturally. Furthermore, the geographic characteristics of the area make it prime environment for hiking, cycling and horse riding, for those that enjoy a day in the countryside. The municipality is also home to prehistoric Phoenician and Carthaginian settlements.
