P.D.O. Queso de La Serena
"La Serena, naturally"

The rock engravings, the dolmen ensembles or the magnificent examples of orientalising influence speak of a territory with an incomparable cultural and historical wealth. The numerous vestiges of Roman times, without forgetting an important example of military architecture, tell you about the strategic nature of an area that has witnessed a strong belligerence between Christians and Muslims, ending with the control of the territory by Military Orders who were present in the region since medieval times.
