Did you know that... Villar de Torre

 

It is nestled on the bank of the one-eyed river. Celtiberian and Roman remains have been found in Villar de Torre. In the 11th century there was a monastery in the town, that of Santa María, and the first documents in which reference is made to the town date from this period when King García Fortúnez of Pamplona and his wife offered it to the Monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla. For some time it was a royal villa. After the disappearance of the lordships in 1811, it became a town in the province of Burgos, until the creation of the province of Logroño in 1833.
