Its name comes from a country house called ‘Quinta’ or ‘Quintana’. There, the tenants paid a fifth for the fruit collected.

Part of the Ruta de la Lana (Wool Route) and the historic Camino del Cid (El Cid Path), the River Rejas flows through this village and it has a sensationally monumental plant life: oak, thyme, Erica vagans, rockrose and heather.
