Located 15 Km from Aranda de Duero, it is known for its cultural heritage: the chapel of la Virgen de la Cueva, the church of San Juan Bautista, the bridge that crosses the River Riaza, the electricity factory and the mills.
The story of la Virgen de la Cueva is peculiar. The Lords of Haza must have spotted from their castle a light shining from the cave. On approaching the cave they found the sculpture of the Virgin and put it in an ox cart, which despite using all of their strength, the cart couldn’t be moved.
A different version talks of labourers from the neighbouring village (Adrada de Haza), who discovered the Virgin in a nearby cave. They tried to take it, in order to create a place of worship in their village, but as soon as they loaded it, the mules refused to walk and they were unable to move it from its place. They therefore decided to create the chapel of la Virgen de la Cueva in this spot.
