Toward the end of the 15th century, the town had a population of about 5, and a city centre with several arterial roads, dominated by the Paris Church of Our Lady of Granadathe castle, the San Francisco convent and the Santa Clara monastery.
There was much economic activity and the many ships visited the port. This was the situation of Moguer when it played a significant role in the first voyage of Christopher Columbus. On several occasions, Columbus came to Moguer seeking help. The Catholic Monarchs had ordered the towns of the Andalusian coasts to provide assistance to Columbus  and by means of a commission directed the town of Moguer to comply with this provision.
The seventeenth century was a time of hardship for the Spanish monarchy, and Moguer could not escape this situation. The population decreased significantly. Nonetheless, the rise of Moguer in terms of relative importance was recognized in when Philip IV granted Moguer the title of a "city" ciudad.

The eighteenth century was characterized by economic, political and technical stability. The Lisbon earthquake caused extensive damage in the city,  leaving only the strongest buildings standing: Other buildings had to be rebuilt or restored—as was the Convent of San Francisco, rebuilt in the mannerist style—or built from scratch—as were the city hall, a masterpiece of civil Baroqueor the Parish Church of Our Lady of Granada, which retained only its original 14th-century tower.
Because of the dramatic 18th-century increase in the population, this church was enlarged to cathedral proportions, with five navesthe highest and widest being the central nave. Contemporary history[ edit ] The story of 19th-century Moguer is essentially that of 19th-century Spain. At the beginning of the century, Moguer was the most populous centre in its part of Spain 7, inhabitants followed by Huelva. The French invasion during the Peninsular War left a general sense of provisionality and bewilderment.
Briefly in the territorial division of Spain and then permanently in the divisiona province was established with Huelva as its capital, despite a long and bitter verbal struggle to make Moguer the capital of the new politico-administrative unit.
Ecclesiastically, Moguer had been the seat of the vicarage of the same name since the midth century and also core of a deanery arciprestazgo whose area was broader than the old parish, which only extended as far as Palos de la Frontera. The end of noble and ecclesiastical territorial privileges had a strong effect on local economic structures, especially with respect to the Church.

Wine remained Moguer's fundamental product and the river natural means to export that wine, although traffic to the river port had declined sharply due to silting that decreased the depth of the channel. The population began to decline unstoppably until the industrial development of Huelva in the s and, most importantly, until the adoption of strawberries as a crop in the s. Moguer is now Spain's principal producer of strawberries,  which has led to great population growth in recent decades.
Now, in the early 21st century, the economy of Moguer is largely driven by the growth of strawberries and raspberries ; the construction industry and service sectors are also strong. Economy[ edit ] In ancient times, the economoy of Moguer and its region was based in fishing and seafaring.
Moguer has been connected since ancient times to the principal ports of the Mediterranean and North African coasts. This activity continued through the Middle Ages.
In the Low Middle AgesMoguer experienced economic growth through agricultural development including the raising of livestock. Moguer thrived thanks to the cultivation of wheat, wine grapes, espartohempand other crops, as well as continued prosperity in fishing. During the 15th century, this was supplemented by several industries relying on ovens: This period also saw the growth of agricultural warehouses and mercantile enterprises for agricultural industries.
