The town is called after the river Guadalteba passing through it and also giving name to the water reservoir nearby. It lies in the hydrological complex of Guadalhorce-Guadalteba between the mountains Camorra, Camorrillo, San Cristóbal and El Castillo.
The streets are constructed in a typical Andalusian style. From the castle, one of the most important sights of the town, you can see until the city centre. Another impressive monument is the church Santa Cruz Real from the 18th century.
The town lies at the beginning of the mountain. Here you can still see ruins of the former fortress. The parish church Nuestra Señora de los Remedios from the 16th century is one of the towns’ sights.
