SANTORCAZ

History has left interesting patrimonial samples in Santorcaz like the Castle of Torremocha, dated in the XIII century although it was extended during the following two centuries. In addition, there is a walled enclosure of which seven towers are preserved. The castle had different uses, among them the defensive, the palatial residence and also the prison. Next to the walls of the Castle stands the Church of San Torcuato -also from the 13th century- which stands out for its Mudejar tower and chevet and for its façade. The interior of the temple houses valuable relics.

The urban architecture of the municipality maintains its traditional spirit with examples of rural houses and other elements such as the old washing place and the fountains of the Plaza and Caño Alto. All this is an invitation to stroll through the streets of the town.
