Historic and Artistic Heritage
This town, which was declared an Historic-Artistic Site in 1982, has three thousand years of history. It was a commercial centre with the Tartessians and a place of great importance during the Roman Era – Ilipla. It gained prestige with the Visigoths and, in 713, it was occupied by the Moors. Niebla has many things that contribute to its fame. The remains of its red walls, from the 12th century, are some of the best preserved in Spain. During the siege it experienced, gunpowder was used for military purposes for the first time in the West. You simply have to visit Niebla.
