Walking through the typical streets, squares and small squares of a stately village such as Cuzcurrita de Río Tirón, we will come across beautiful mansions that carefully resist the passage of time. Outstanding among them, next to the river, in the Plaza Mayor stands the majestic church of San Miguel built in the eighteenth century in Riojan Baroque style.

The castle of Cuzcurrita de Río Tirón was built at the end of the 15th century by Pedro Suárez de Figueroa. It is a walled enclosure with cubes at the corners and a slender homage tower that has no windows in its walls. A restored wash-house began its history in early 1862. Already on the outskirts of the town, in the mount Bolo, you can see the Rollo, a vestige of the lordship of the place. The hermitage of Sorejana, of Romanesque style, can be reached through the castle wall, going up the waters of the river Tirón. The hermitage of Nuestra Señora de Tironcillo is about three kilometres from the village following the course of the river and was built in the middle of the 18th century in the Baroque style.
