This village is characterised by the abundant presence of emblazoned stately homes, most of which were built in the 16th century. Out of all of them, the most noteworthy is the Casa Fuerte de los Salcedo due to its stonework tower that is lifted 25 metres high. Originally it was built with adobe with defensive purposes and dates back to the Middle Ages. It is suggested that the tower is of Berber origin like the so-called Rituerto towers built in the 10th century, however, the first records of them allude to wars between Aragoneses and Castilians. Later structural reforms were performed by the artist Martín de Solano, creator of the indoor porticoed courtyard that dates back to the 16th century. On the façade we can still see the coat of arms of the Ríos and Salcedo families, who carried out this reform, and whose union gave place to the saga of the earls of Gómara.

 

The parochial church is rich in diverse architectonical styles that range from the Visigoths to the Renaissance. It is devoted to Nuestra Señora de La Blanca and it maintains the Romanesque sanctuary and façade which is quite simple. On the other hand, inside there is a predominant Renaissance style and the Salcedo family’s pantheon.
