Durante el pasado siglo, Sierra Morena y la Serranía de Ronda eran terreno abonado en el que proliferaban los bandoleros, quienes en solitario o en partidas, ensangrentaban la región con incesantes asaltos y asesinatos.

Como Lucero, cuyo nombre corre de boca en boca por toda la serrania como paladin de los desheredados de la fortuna
