This little town of less than 8000 inhabitants is equidistant from the Costa del Sol, Granada and Sevilla, has been an important pig farming, leather production and mining centre since Roman times. It is close to La Fuente de la Piedra ('fountain of stone') one of the largest breeding areas for flamingos in Europe.

Like much of Andalucía, it was invaded by the moors but eventually was retaken by the Christian forces in 1324, when the town was almost ruined. After the fall of Granada in 1492, it was rebuilt and resettled by farmers and coal workers from Osuna and Teba.

The most important church in Campillos is Iglesia Parroquial Nuestra Señora del Reposo, the parish church of our lady of rest, which is next to the town's plaza central. The bell tower was built by Fray Miguel de Santísimo Sacramento in the 16th century.

The main altar in the church has a pine tabernacle with fluted columns, and elaborate capitals

 

Campillos is within easy driving distance of Ronda, Seville, Antequera and Granada. The beaches of the Costa Del Sol are within an hours drive.
