The Carolina is a town located to the north of the province of Jaén (Spain). It was capital and seat of the intendancy of the new populations.
The "New Populations" of Andalusia and Sierra Morena were created around 1767, during the reign of Carlos III, and suppressed in 1813.
The creation of the New Populations took place during the reign of Carlos III. These was an illustrated project elaborated by Campomanes and entrusted to Pablo de Olavide. It consisted in populating the large unpopulated extensions existing in the course of the Camino Real of Andalusia. The objective was favoring the security of the traffic of people and merchandise that circulated along the road of Andalusia, especially of the dangers derived from banditry.
This initiative sought to develop a new social organization, liberated from the jurisdictional restrictions of the Old Regime in some way. For it was drafted the "New Populations Fuero" (Law), which regulated the aspects of the economic and social life of settlers.
