A little more history

 

Very possibly the origin of the locality is not much older. The municipality has always been related to the Way and closely linked to the Temple until they, the Templars, in 1183 and with the consent of King Alfonso VIII, exchanged it for other properties. Since 1554, the Dominican nuns were the administrators of this hospital, which is believed to have been located next to the cemetery.
