This small and quiet village in the region of Ribera del Duero is located on the south-western border of the province and limits with the Segovian land of Ayllón and the province of Guadalajara. The mountain ranges of Grada and Pela serve as a natural border between these areas. This place is the source of a river named after this village that brings life to it. Pedro’s heritage is its natural landscape where you can find reddish sandstone hills which are included in a protection program carried out by the eco-network, Red Natura 2000. To the south, you can find the Ayllón mountain range and the Losana Pine Groves, to the east the Barahona Peaks and to the north the Holm Oak Groves of Tiermes.

 

There are Places of Community Interest and Special Protection Areas for birds in this beautiful environment with eroded mountain chains abundant in lush forests of cistus and oaks in the Ayllón massifs.  The landscape is made up of small limestone canyons covered in holm oak, juniper, gall oak and, of course, pine groves. At the Barahona Peaks you can see a great amount of thyme, small holm oak and gall oak forests, and grasslands where one of the most protected and important bird species lives: the Dupont’s lark.

 

There are many archaeological sites throughout this territory that document the presence of human life from the Chalcolithic era to the Bronze Ages, but the Celtiberian-Roman archaeological site of Tiermes is without a doubt the most famous one in the southern part of the province.

 

At the end of the 11th century and beginning of the 12th, Pedro was part of the Community of Burgs and Land of Caracena and the dioceses of Sigüenza. A building from this period that can still be visited today is the chapel of Virgen del Val.

 

Traditionally, locals dedicated their lives to tilling this red land and producing livestock. Several documents state that already in the 19th century the locals would produce wheat, oats, rye, beans, vegetables, fruit and good pastures that fed sheep, cows and donkeys. They also mentioned the existence of looms, flour mills and fulling mills.

 

The post-medieval parochial church is dedicated to Saint Peter the Apostol.
