Quintana Redonda and its respective villages (La Barbolla, Fuentealdea, Fuentelárbol, Izana, La Revilla de Calatañazor, La Seca, Monasterio, Las Cuevas de Soria, La Ventosa de Fuentepinilla and Los Llamosos) are all surrounded by oak, holm oak and black pine groves from which they extract resin. In the area there is an outstanding amount and variety of mushrooms and other types of fungi; some of these edible species are parasol mushrooms, saffron milk caps, king trumpet mushrooms, morels, St. George’s mushrooms, as well as other species that are common in pine and oak groves.

 

But if you’re more into architecture, here’s a list of some monuments you can visit while in the area.

 

In Quintana Redonda:

The Pottery Centre (Centro Temático de la Cerámica) is located in one of the old schools. Inside you can find interactive audiovisual material that provides information on ceramic craftsmanship in Quintana Redonda and surrounding villages. For more information on opening hours, check out www.villaromanaladehesa.es or call +34 660 01 78 54.

 

Portico of the church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción. This church was rebuilt between 1921 and 1924 in an attempt to recover some of the features of the ancient Romanesque temple, for example, the portico, the arched vaults and the cantilevers.

 

The façade of the emblazoned Palace of González de Gregorio.

 

The bullfighting ring (plaza de toros) which was restored in the beginning of the 21st century and is currently used during the local festivities in August for bull runs, events and concerts.

 

The “love fountain” (la fuente de los enamorados) is a granite fountain located in the entrance of the town when coming from Soria. It has two hearts crossed by an arrow, and on the back part of the ceramic tiles there is an inscription which says “From this water you will drink and soon you will wear a ring” (“De esta agua beberás y pronto te casarás”), “And if you are married today, in love you will stay” (“Y si estuvieras casado seguirás enamorado).

 

In Los Llamosos:

The church dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary is one of the oldest Romanesque temples in all Soria. Its construction dates back to the first third of the 12th century. There you can also see, south of the Hinodejo mountain range, the source of the Izana river.

 

In Cuevas de Soria:

The Romanesque church devoted to San Pedro with a porticoed gallery and a 15th-century Gothic altarpiece.

 

Magna Mater Museum. There is a Tardoroman villa that still maintains about 30 well-preserved Roman mosaics from the 3rd and 4th centuries. The archaeological site and the mosaics can be seen thanks to a glass bridge that has been installed. There are also many rooms with audio-visual resources, exhibitions and information panels, as well as scale models that let the visitor learn more about the Roman rural lifestyle.
