Santa María de la Alameda


The natural value of the municipality is evident. Water is present thanks to the Aceña and Cofio rivers, the Hornillo and Tobar streams and the Tobar dam. Santa María de la Alameda has a great forest wealth, with oak and pine forests.  Ideal for breathing fresh air and outdoor activities, it also offers the possibility to practice hang gliding and paragliding.

The main example of the artistic heritage of the town is the Church of Santa Maria, whose construction in several phases began in the sixteenth century. During the 20th century it has undergone several reforms. Among its architectural elements, the following stand out:

The apse of masonry with granite ashlar buttresses and the body of the church -possibly from the XVII century- which incorporates Tuscan granite columns of one piece that separate the three naves of the church.
