Historia de Conil en Verso

21 Mar

The History of Conil in verse

Prehistoric Conil and almadrabero from the hand of the Phoenicians.

Of Tartessian name and Roman splendour.

Assaulted by Vandals, Visigoths and Byzantines.

Until its Islamic period in Al-Andalus under the territory of Sidonia.

The Christians baptised it during the Reconquest with the surname of “la Frontera”,

as they did in many neighbouring towns.

The new name Pérez de Guzmán arrives,

by order of the King.

The Almadraba continues to sustain the town, and in the 17th century, its golden age, it saw it flourish. Later, agriculture and cattle raising bear fruit, which are still in force today.

In the 19th century, ah Napoleon, but not for long.

And in the 20th century, tourism arrived, which

stayed in Conil, giving it joy and good times!
