Desde la carretera y a cierta distancia, lo que más llama la atención de este pueblo cordobés es el aislado promontorio cuya cima alberga el castillo desde el que se domina toda la zona y al amparo del cual se formó esta localidad tras la reconquista.
Peñarroya-Pueblonuevo past, where the landscape still retains remnants of its mining industry, lies the town of Bélmez.
From the road some distance, the most striking of these people is the isolated hill Cordoba top of which houses the castle from which dominates the area andunder cover of which this town was formed after the reconquest.
This town was in the early twentieth century a very strong immigration by the discovery of the possibilities that characterize coal municipality.
Today, the great habit of Bélmez is the "day of the screws," which is celebrated on January 19, which goes to the mountains nearby to pick bunches of thyme, which are brought to their doorsteps, to cross streets or squares, which are piled up to touch souls, at which time they were on fire, and around these candles, singing, dancing and playing.
