In the middle region of the Guadalhorce, this town combines tranquility with an interesting artistic heritage. The figure of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on a nearby summit sits in the fertile plain of the river Gudalhorce, sheltered by the mountains of Gibralmora and Gibralgalia. This peaceful town offers visitors ideal places for hiking, as well as places that evoke the past. This is the case with the necropolis Castillejos de Luna, (Age of Bronze) and Quintana Castillejos, a Moorish old town which still has some semi-excavated houses, rock tombs and an old quarry. In the town of Slate, the Palacio de los Condes is a beautiful Mudejar building erected on the old manor of the town's founder, D. Diego Romero. The Church of St. Peter the Apostle (XVII) stands out for its coffered, gilded neo-baroque altarpiece and its beautiful imagery. The altarpiece in the convent of the Sisters of the Cross is also noteworthy. The hermitage of Fuensanta houses the patron saint of the town. It is worth going to the bridges over the Guadalhorce, the lookouts in the mountains and Raja Ancha and Vega parks. The asparagus and fig bagels are culinary specialities.
The density of orange blossom scent that travels through the air, slips under doors and enters the houses. It is a strong and delicate fragrance. And it is that Slate that is the epicenter of the orchard, an Edenic countryside that consists of vast fruit plantations, typical of a Guadalhorce Valley.

It originated as an ancient Hollander Museum (Gino Hollander, American painter and sculptor who lived many years in Blackboard). It is installed in the restored Cortijo Casablanca - a typical Andalusian building that dates back to the Arabic era and whose present structure has maintained its appearance throughout the nineteenth century. There are 2 rooms, the Gino Hollander Hall, occupying former stables, and the Augustine Chamber Clavijo in the haystack.
