Situated in the far west of the province of Soria, this town dates back to the Middle Ages, when it formed part of the defense line that ran along the River Duero, protecting the kingdom of Castile.

The castle, declared an Asset of Cultural Asset, stands on top of the hill, safeguarding the village that nestles beneath. The castle, landscape and wineries, which form part of the Ribera del Duero Designation of Origin and are therefore of great interest, have earned this town recognition as a Historic Site.
