Did you know that... Villafría

 

It's a neighborhood of Burgos since 1969. It is located 7 km to the east of the centre of the municipality, on the plain formed by the river Vena and its tributary Pico, and is integrated into the urban fabric of Burgos, but separated by the Gamonal industrial estate. The first written reference to Villafría dates from the year 931, when it was mentioned as Villa Frida, Alfonso IV donated it to San Pedro de Cardeña.

A little more history

 

It formed part of the Alfoz and Jurisdiction of Burgos, and was one of the fourteen places that formed its Intendancy during the period between 1.785 and 1.833, as stated in the Census of Floridablanca of 1.787. As it depended on the Monastery of San Pedro de Cardeña it had the jurisdiction of an abbot and the abbot appointed the mayor.
