is one of the 31 towns and villages that make up the Ruta
Mudéjar, in the Axarquía. It is a typical Moorish
town, filled with examples of Mudejar architecture, with
narrow and winding streets that carry the stamp of the Moorish
village. Its altitude provides wonderful views over the beautiful
countryside around the village, and from here one can see
the Sierra Tejeda Mountains, the Mountains of Bentomiz and
on clear days, the Atlas Mountains across the Mediaterranean.
The history of Sedella goes back to pre-historic
times, and although no big archaeological finds have been
made, there is sufficient evidence to show that people have
lived here from time immemorial. Among the objects found
in the area are flint axes and other hunting tools. Romans
and Carthaginians settled here too, as we can see from coins
and ceramic pieces discovered in the area.
As for the origin of the town’s name,
it comes from the Latin sedilia, which means emplacement
or rural possession. There have been other names: the
oldest documentary evidence we have is Villa del Castillo,
and variations on the Roman name include Sedille,
dating from the 7th century. This name appears on a map of
the diocese ordered to be made by the Visigoth king Wamba.
Later, the Malaga bishop Teodulpo refers to the town in an
Episcopal address as Sedilla. And following the Christian
conquest in 1487, the place was called Xedalia. But
the final word on the town’s name comes from Queen
Isabel herself, during the re-conquest. There was, apparently,
a fierce battle between Moors and Christians in the area
known as the Arroyo de la Matanza. When informed of the battle,
the queen replied: "Sé de ella", I know
