OUR EMPTY SPAIN
Municipality located in the foothills of the Sierra Modorra. The parish church dedicated to San Lorenzo is one of its most significant buildings. Baroque style of the s. XVI-XVII, it has an octagonal tower and beautiful plasterwork of Mudejar tradition.
It also has a good collection of altarpieces, among which stands out for its artistic quality and antiquity, the Gothic altarpiece of San Blas (15th century), attributed to Juan de Bonilla, Santa Ana of the Renaissance type; San Lorenzo of baroque type, etc.
Next to the church the old laundry is preserved and the peirones of San Ramón Nonato, or “del Pilar”, on the road to Codos and San Roque, on the way out of town towards Langa del Castillo, are also kept in good condition.
Torralbilla was long ago the industrial nucleus of the region, at that time the manufacture of lime and tiles was the base of its economy until the middle of the 20th century. Today, the town preserves buildings from its flourishing past.
In the municipal area we find places of great beauty in the La Dehesa and Valdeyermo mountains, and also in the pine forest known as Las Hoyas, a common destination for excursions by residents and visitors.
