In 2014, this village won the local Touristic Municipality Prize (Premio Municipio Turístico) of the province of Soria due to the fact that both the Ruta de la Lana (part of the Camino de Santiago) and the Route of the Cid pass through it.

 

The Renaissance parochial church of La Magdalena originally had a Latin cross floor plan but was renovated to accommodate four other altars. The four baroque altarpieces show Saint Sebastian, Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary and Saint Anthony of Padua. The east end of the temple has an altarpiece made up of three polychromatic wooden boards with the Patron Saint, Saint Mary Magdalene.

 

The chapel of Santo Cristo del Campillo, also of a Renaissance style, has a regular floor plan. On its walls, you can see funerary steles dating back to the 1st century B.C., one of which represents a funerary banquet where the deceased is sat in a chair with a high backrest, with a fan in his right hand and a lachrymatory for libations in the left. This scene is completed from left to right with a spectator and a horseman. Above, there are two animals. This ashlar would correspond to the type of funerary art found in the colony of Clunia Sulpicia. There is another stele that represents the sun and is dedicated to the Manes.

 

The Palace of Avellaneda (Palacio de los Avellaneda), which is currently being restored, is the most emblematic building in the town. Like the previous buildings, it has a Renaissance style and was used as a halfway point for the Avellaneda family on their journeys from Peñaranda to Guijosa. It has a U-shaped floor plan with an arcaded courtyard inside, and a main entrance crowned with battlements.

 

Route of the Fountains (Ruta de las Fuentes): A 13.4 km long route that lets you visit all eighteen restored fountains. A third part of the route goes through the municipality’s streets, another through natural pathways and the rest through neighbouring paths.
