With a population of 900 inhabitants, it maintains the typical appearance of the mountainous, country towns, with steep, narrow roads and whitewashed, low- lying houses. It is an ideal place to practice all sports of open- air activities in contact with nature.
In its municipal district, we can find some religious buildings of great popular and historical interest: the Church of San Francisco de Asís, the Shrine of El Castañuelo and the Shrine of La Santa Cruz del Chorrillo.
The local holidays and festivities are dedicated to San Francisco de Asís and are celebrated during October. Furthermore, another date of interest is the one dedicated to the emigrant, celebrated in mid- August.
In its gastronomy, the most relevant dishes are the fennel stew, “el gazpacho caliente”, the cod pancakes and the pork cold cuts and the rest of the pork derivates. The exquisite “mosto”, made with local grapes, serves as a good wine to wash down such succulent delicacies.
