A small town nestling in the north-west of the province of Burgos, close to the River Urbel ravine.

In the 16th century this prosperous and thriving location was granted the status of a town. Powerful families bearing illustrious names such as Zorrilla, Arriaga, Fernández, and Los Salamanca chose it as the site for their magnificent mansions.

A spectacular setting much appreciated by noble families that admired its natural beauty.
