Arroyo del Ojanco is a village belonging to the ‘Sierra de Segura’ shire (comarca de la Sierra de Segura) in province of Jaén, Spain. According to the 2006 census (INE), the city has a population of 2468 inhabitants. It is surrounded by Segura de la Sierra, Beas de Segura, Puente de Génave and Chiclana de Segura’s municipal districts. It is located in the access of ‘Sierra de Cazorla, Segura y las Villas’ Natural Park and its district is passed through by the river Guadalimar.

On January, 21st 2001 its segregation was achieved and it became independent from ‘Beas de Segura’ city council. This process began with a denied segregation on June 4, 1953 as a result of a resolution by the Spanish ‘Consejo de Ministros’ (Ministers’ Council). On November, 3rd 1958 another request was made to the ‘Ministro de Governación’ (Government Minister) that was also refused on September 10, 1959 in a decree. In September 1983 Pro-Segregation committee was founded and a dossier was submitted to the ‘Beas de Segura’ city council, which sent it to the Andalusia’s Government. In 1991 a lawsuit was reported in the Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Andalucía (Andalusia’s Major Court) and it was approved on April 5, 1993. Nevertheless, it was delayed until January 18 th, 2001 when the Major Court finally approved it.

In its municipal district the Fuentebuena olive tree can be found. This olive tree was proclaimed Natural Monument by the Andalusia’s Government and it is included in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most ancient olive tree in the world.
