Things to see
In the village centre, with narrow streets and white houses adorned with flowers, the most important building is the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Carmen. This church, built in a neoclassic style on a large scale dates from the 16th and 17th centuries. The Ermita de la Virgen de la Salud, located in the so called landscape of La Era, is also worth visiting. According to tradition, the statue of this Virgen, much adored by the townsfolk, appeared above a spring near the sanctuary. Another interesting place to see is La Carenata, an old spring with a public laundry area which is still used as a meeting place for residents.
