Teba, a town steeped in history.

Teba, located in the province of Málaga, Andalusia, Spain, is a town with a rich history and charming landscape. This municipality covers an area of 142.95 km², characterized by rolling hills, cereal fields, and olive groves, with an average altitude of 555 meters above sea level. According to 2017 data, its population is 3,847 residents.

The urban core of Teba consists of white Andalusian-style houses, noble residences, and palaces, with the imposing Andalusian castle and an 18th-century Baroque church as prominent landmarks. The local economy is based on agriculture and livestock, with a focus on pig farming, wheat cultivation, and olive groves.

Archaeological remains in Teba reveal human occupation dating back to the Paleolithic era, with evidence of Iberian, Roman, and Andalusian settlements. In 1330, Alfonso XI incorporated Teba into the Crown of Castile, and in 1522, the County of Teba was established under the influence of the Guzmán clan. During the 19th and 20th centuries, Teba played a significant role in the labor movement of the region. Currently, the municipality is part of the Network of Municipalities for the Third Republic. Additionally, Teba has the honor of being considered a Cervantine town, as the presence of Miguel de Cervantes in the locality during his time as a tax collector in the Kingdom of Seville has been documented, although he also had legal troubles in Teba that led to his imprisonment.
