The Roman road of the Puerto del Pico has a great historical value, because communicated the lands of the Meseta Norte with the Valle del Tietar, and then with the Toledo and Extremandura lands.

It became a strategic road for the transhumance because the cattle have gone and go from the other side of mountains at the beginning of the summer and from the mountains to the opposite side when the winter starts. Besides it has always been a road used by muleteers and merchants of Andalucia, Talavera and Extremadura traditionally
