This important village is located at the half-way point between Granada and Murcia at 953 m of altitude in a fertile valley at the foothills of Sierra de La Sagra mountain range near Lakes Clemente and Castril. In the village¸ visitors can see the Church of Santa Mar?a¸ a listed National Monument¸ which keeps inside a priceless object¸ the monstrance known as Torrecilla Alta; the 16th century Colegiata de la Encarnaci?n and the numerous ancient homes still preserved with significant architectonic interest.
At 9 km from the old town towards the sanctuary of the patron saints of Hu?scar¸
St Alodia and Nunil?n¸ lies the Salto del Moro¸ a famous rock in this region for
its peculiar shape¸ followed by the Piedra del Letrero¸ so called for its

On the 11th of November 1981¸ surprisingly was when the "Peace Agreement with Denmark" was signed¸ as reported by the media. Thanks to research carried out by D. Vicente Gonz?lez Barber?n on the history of Hu?scar¸ he found that this municipality declared war to Denmark on the 11th of November 1809. Taking into account that a war never finishes until the peace agreement is signed¸ it was logical to put an end to this anachronism. Therefore¸ Hu?scar authorities decided on the 7th of July 1981 to start peace talks with the Danish authorities aiming to re-establish peace after 172 years of war. This fact bonded both¸ Hu?scar and Denmark¸ by making this Andalusian town and Kolding twin cities.
