Monuments

One monument located here is the Church of Cascajares de la Sierra. It has a baptismal font and Romanesque delicate ornamentation. Probably the most remarkable thing here is the semicircular Romanesque apse and the presbytery, which are both considered the pride and joy in the early Romanesque, Visigoth, and even late twelfth century eras.[1]
