The hermitage-cave of San Vicente, a rest of a rock hermitage, is located near the confluence of the rivers Rivera and Pisuerga. It is part of one of the greatest Spanish hermit ensembles, the Alto Pisuerga. Basically, it presents a large rectangular room with several entrances and rough openings, to which is added a chapel excavated to the East, differentiated from the rest by a step that could have been closed by an apse of masonry.

The shrine is surrounded by a necropolis, dated between the VIII and XI centuries, of which have been discovered twenty tombs carved into the rock, with a predominance of those of anthropomorphic type.
