North of the province, in a privileged natural area is this small village that expands its homestead along the course of two streams and the Razón River. It is this precise river that gives name to a valley between different mountain ranges: Cebollera, del Castillo, Carcaña and Tabanera. The forests surrounding the village give a spectacular show changing colours seasonally. The geographical and environmental characteristics of the region have given place to the formation of exuberant forests that cover the land with common pine groves: the largest grove of this species in the entire Iberian Peninsula. Other trees that can be seen here are oak, holly, beech and riparian forests.

 

These glacial origin hills and the Cebollera Lagoon located at the source of the Razoncillo River are visited by some important bird species such as the grey partridge, short-toed snake eagles, red kites, bee-eaters, storks or golden eagles. Due to the importance of these species, the eco-network, Red Natura 2000, has granted protection to this area.

 

Bush species, grasslands, pasturelands and cereal plantations are also added to this ecosystem where livestock animals find the perfect conditions for their development. The traditional utilisation of the resources for livestock and the transformation of milk into butter have made Valle del Razón become part of the Butter Valley. There is an Interpretation Centre in the nearby village, Molinos de Razón, dedicated to this exquisite product with a Protected Designation of Origin.

 

It is quite likely that this place was a village that the 1528 Pecheros Census referred to as El Aldehilla, where there were only three inhabitants that were obliged to pay taxes to the King, according to a document of the medieval administrative division, Sexmo de Tera of the Community of Burgs and Land of Soria during the Middle Ages.

 

Madoz speaks of a place that had 40 medium sized houses, most of them without indoor commodities and placed about randomly.

 

Nowadays, the homestead has whitewashed stone buildings, with ashlar framework and monolithic lintels on the spans. The roofs are mostly doubled and traditionally covered in tiles: a characteristic that can still be seen in some buildings.

 

The church is dedicated to Saint John the Evangelist.
