Situated on the banks of the River Tiétar, Guisando is part of the Gredos Regional Park and boasts a Mediterranean climate, proof of the region’s wealth of ecosystems. The municipality is popular with climbers and mountaineers, as it rises from 400 m to 2,392 m at La Mira Peak. Indeed, King Alphonse IX made particular mention of the area’s magnificent wildlife.
It formed part of the Mendoza family territories until it received its own jurisdiction and status as a town under King Charles III.
The town blends in perfectly with its natural setting, which earned it the status of an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1976. It is noted for its traditional yet also original architecture, and the Church of the Purísima Concepción is undoubtedly its most valuable historical legacy.
