Presentation of Cenes de la Vega

The municipality of Cenes de la Vega (6,458 inhabitants in 2008; 700 ha; municipal website) is located in the Granada Plain (vega), 5 km south-west of Granada.
There is no historical account of Cenes de la Vega before the 16th century; beforehand, the town probably experienced the same troubled history as Granada. During the Muslim period, the place was settled only during the period of silkworm rearing, therefore its nickname of villa de la seda (Silk Town).
