The town of Bejar, declared Historical Site, remembers its medieval history by means of a defensive wall and the rooted tradition of the Moss Men (Hombres de Musgo). Its past splendour as a clothing manufacture centre made it be known as a textile city.


The weather and cultural conditions of the area have brought as a result a distinctive popular architecture, which finds the utmost expression in Candelario, declared Historical Site.

Montemayor del Río

Due to the fact of being situated in a strategic position, near the main communication routes – the Calzada and La Plata Cattle route – this village was traditionally the watch over place between the kingdoms of Leon and Castile and Extremadura.
