It is located on the old French Way that leads to Villalcázar de Sirga, halfway between Carrión de los Condes and Frómista, and set on one of the gentle undulations of the Palencia countryside. In the documentation of Cardeña, between 935 and 939, a place called Revendica is mentioned. Revenga de Campos was a town influenced by the French Way of Saint James, although it is not known that it had hospitals for pilgrims.
In Revenga was born General Bartolomé Amor, famously known for his defense of the city of Palencia during the War of Independence against Napoleon's troops, although he had a long and fruitful military life.
In Revenga de Campos its parish church of San Lorenzo, from the XII century, reformed in the XVI century, shows us in its interior a beautiful door, called of the napkins by the reliefs that has in the form of these, that gives access to the sacristy, as well as the greater altarpiece of the XVII century. A simple monument in honour of his illustrious son Bartolomé Amor can be seen in the church park. From its Jacobean tradition, apart from the French Street, it exhibits the Pilgrim's Cross and between the houses of the village there are some of them emblazoned with coats of arms of the XVI century. The Fountain of La Zancada and the Fountain of Caño have been an emblematic symbol of Revenga de Campos in recent years and are waiting to be restored to the delight of residents and visitors..
Revenga de Campos celebrates its festivities on 10 August in honour of San Lorenzo and on 13 June it celebrates San Antonio de Padua.
In Revenga de Campos it is traditional to celebrate, on August 10th, a Castilian mass followed by a procession to honour San Lorenzo, and the next day another one is made for the deceased.
Emperor Charles V lived in one of the town's emblazoned houses.
