At the village entrance we can find the Torre del Reloj with a Papamoscas. Next to it, there is a wall with a bell in case of fire. The Parish Church of Santa María, from the 16th century, was built on the remains of a Mozarabic church. It is built with ashlar and masonry, with a single nave with three sections of different proportions and a rectangular chancel covered by a barrel vault. There are many important and emblazoned civil buildings, most of them from the 16th and 17th centuries. The bridges that join the two districts of the village, divided by the Najerilla River, also stand out.
