Between the solid mass of limestone of the Sierra de Libar and the River Guadiaro stands Benaojan, which still retains the essence of the Arab-designed villages with their narrow streets and whitewashed houses. Nuestra Señora del Rosario Church is its most noteworthy building, and the cured pork sausage industry which has made Benaojan deservedly famous is clearly in evidence. Just seven kilometres from the village, on the slopes of the Sierra de Libar, stands La Pileta Cave, considered to be the finest example of Andalusian cave art.
