Presentation of Valle de Santa Ana

The municipality of Valle de Santa Ana (1,139 inhabitants in 2019; 383 ha, therefore the smallest municipality of Extremadura by its area, totally surrounded by Jerez de los Caballeros) is located 80 km south of Badajoz.

Valle de Santa Ana is of disputed origin. Solano de Figueroa, Ortiz de Thovar and other chroniclers, as well, claim that the village was established around an old chapel dedicated to St. Ann. Madoz believes that the village was established more recently, as Valle del Pino (Pine Valley) by families fleeing Jerez de los Caballeros, then scoured by epidemics.
In 1594, Santa Ana, then counting 1,963 inhabitants, was listed among the local possessions of the León Province of the Order of Saint James.
Valle de Santa Ana separated from Jerez de los Caballeros in 1860.
