Oria is situated o¬n the far northern side of the Almanzora Valley, on the slopes of the Sierra de las Estancias, and has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Oria is 113.6 kms from the capital of the province, Almería. It stands at nearly 1.022 metres above sea level and perhaps this is the reason that one of the features of the village are the tall chimneys. This is a windy location and the high chimneys ensure that smoke from the fires (very necessary during the winter) does not blow back down to the fireplaces.
The archaeological dig at El Picacho in La Rambla de Oria has revealed plenty of remains dating back to the Bronze Age, but so far no evidence of buildings. However, remains of the important medieval settlement have survived – the Alcazaba, Turkish baths and an irrigation system which continues supplying water to the surrounding plain.
The Moors also built a mezquita outside the village on the slopes of the mountains behind, and indeed they fought hard for this town. When Sebastián Elquagaci finally lost his battle, he was taken before the Inquisition who confiscated all his possessions and condemned him to six years in the galleys. The higher site of medieval fortifications – El Villar and Castillo de Olias – is naturally difficult to reach since the castle was built to control the nearby strategic pass.
In 1492, the Catholic King and Queen gave Oria and the surrounding territory to Don Juan Chacón and when he died in 1503 everything went to his second wife who sold it all to the first Marques of Vélez. Unfortunately the chronicles of the 16th Century have been lost and little is known of this era, except that very few people lived here and they must have had a hard life, struggling to cultivate the sterile soil, where even the sturdy olive trees struggle to survive.
Today’s population is scattered among Oria’s hamlets, which include Fuente del Negro, La Rambla de Oria, San Indalecio and Los Cerricos. In these small settlements and in the main village there are plenty of examples of traditional domestic and agricultural buildings as well as several waterwheels.
