Tourist information

Laroles is the main town in the municipality of Nevada. It is well known for its magnificent chestnut trees, whose delicious fruits have been eaten and sold throughout the town’s history.

The Fuente Cantarina fountain deserves a special mention; thousands of people come each year to see it. On the upper part of the column, placed here in 1681, there is a marble statue of the Immaculate Virgin. On the lower part there is a statue of an angel promising that: “With one Hail Mary you will earn 10 days of indulgence“.
