San Nicolás de Bari Church

Romanesque style, the church was built between the 12th and the 13th centuries, although from that period it has just been preserved part of the tower, its apse decorated with cantilevers, a façade with three archivolts and some mullioned windows forming a modest closed portico. At the inner there are several remarkable Baroque altarpieces highlighting the major one, and as well several sacral silver work pieces.

The Shearing House (Cabanillas)

It is situated in one of the village laterals, and it is the only one preserved undamaged among all the existing in the former Castilian Reign. Its construction dated in the mid 18th century, is architectonically related to the Diaz Gamones. As all the shearing houses, it was aimed to receive a large number of transhumant flocks and shearers. It presents a large rectangular space surrounded by a masonry fence, with all the buildings and courtyards scattered on a large area. It was declared Good of Cultural Interest in 1977 (Bien de Interés Cultural-BIC).

It is also possible to admire at the village, La Magdalena Chapel, San Roque and San Miguel Chapels (Cabanillas), three old cattle crushes, a mill at El Caserío de la Torre and many other elements from the historic-cultural heritage.
