Cereals such as barley and wheat are the most widely grown crops. Granada has nine regions, which contain a total of 173 municipalities.
Diocesan records are well preserved in Granada. Parish records, unfortunately, are not. Numerous churches were burned during the Republic (1931-1936) and the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). In many municipalities in the province, the parish archives were destroyed or disappeared during the Civil War. Where they were completely destroyed (for example, in Deifontes) there are no records prior to 1939. A significant portion of the territory of the Granada diocese and almost all that corresponding to the diocese of Guadix remained in the republican zone. In Guadix and its region, numerous religious archives were burned.
