The name of the town tells us that the original inhabitants came from the Bierzo area, and that it is situated along the Camino Real, or Royal Camino. This designation has nothing at all to do with royalty but is rather a term given to primary roads that met a certain metric for size; much like versions of our modern day National highways.
The Iglesia de San Salvador contains a sculpture of St. John the Baptist. The original church tower very nearly lasted into the 21st c., but not quite. The replacement is an uninspiring steel bell tower.
