  La Casilla del Pastor is a part of a bigger farm mainly dedicated to subtropical crops (avocado and mango trees), named the Finca de Los Peña, that was known since the last century as Cortijo Paula Ocón. In the past it was dedicated to the growing of olive trees, almonds and lemon trees, but mostly vineyards used to produce raisins.

  This house is a part of the farm since the past centuries, and it was used as a home for the migratory shepherds that, every year, came from the Sierra Tejeda with the flock to spend the winter in this part of the region. The grazing land of the farm were sold by the owners to the shepherds, who had a home in the Casilla for a few months, while the sheep could pasture and were kept in fold yards among the olive trees.
