The (iron) mines of Corcoya in Seville were called “melita” and located in the Sierra de la Cabrera. Due to such exploitation, these mines began to be known throughout Spain. Workers came from all over the world to find work in them, eventually forming up to three work groups: morning, afternoon and night. Because of all this, the townspeople began to feel optimistic since that gave Corcoya in Seville a lot of life and in themselves, they were known nationally.

Corcoyan gastronomy is characterized by various typical dishes depending on their date. In hunting times, the rabbit with garlic, with tomato … and the partridge with beans are well known. In the summer, the truncheon is the best known.
