Historic monuments

About the Hermitage of San Roque it is said it was built during the end of the Black Plague as a gratitude for its end. The Hermitage of San Sebastián dates from the year 1100 and was built as a military fortress during the retake of the village. The Parochial Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción has a Renaissance style, but it was rebuilt in the XIX century due to the bad conservation conditions it had.
