Ecija is known as the 'Frying pan of Spain' due to the extreme temperature it experiences in summer. The day of our visit the temperature was pleasant and we enjoyed a relaxing stroll around the town to visit the many "Baroque towered" churches. These towers are ornately decorated with tiles.
The main square has a few old houses surrounding it, as well as the remains of an old Roman temple.
One of the old mansions called Palacio de Penaflor is covered with beautiful frescoes and a wonderful wrought iron balcony.
