OUR EMPTY SPAIN
Located at the foot of the Sierra del Peco, next to the course of the Huerva river. It is reached by the Mudéjar A-23 highway (exit 215).
In the center of the town is the parochial church of Santiago, of Gothic origin and later reformed. Its high tower stands out, whose lower body, with a square plan, was built in masonry, while the upper one is made of brick and has an octagonal plan. Inside the temple there is a Gothic painting altarpiece dedicated to the Virgin Mary, an interesting 15th century work by artists Miguel Ximénez and Juan de Bonilla.
Other hermitages are that of San Martín, which preserves a set of interesting wall paintings, and the remains of the Madalena hermitage.
In the surroundings of Villadoz the banks of the Huerva river and the remains of the Roman bridge of the Pontarrones, the Peirón de la Virgen del Carmen, the Roman road of Fuente del Manco and the Iberian town of La Tejería stand out. You can also ascend to the top of the Cerro de San Bartolomé (1290m.), With the remains of the hermitage of the same name.
Of special interest to visitors is the bread oven, where you can taste the famous pastries of this town, especially its sleeping cake and its Mudejar glen.
WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO SEE
We can get closer to enjoying the Roman Way of the Fuente del Manco, and the fluvial grove of the Huerva river.
It is a building of masonry and rammed earth with ashlar or brick corners. In its beginnings it could have been a 13th century church, reformed in the 16th. Its interior is a nave with four separate sections with pointed arches and covered with two wooden slopes. In front of the nave there is the chancel covered with a simple ribbed ribbing that is lowered into corbels; small chapels open on both sides; this part predates the nave, perhaps from the early 16th century. The door, preceded by a rustic portico with a gate, is a A pointed arch carved in stone from the 16th century, with a niche. Its Mudejar style tower stands out. There are numerous altarpieces inside the temple, some are: Altarpiece of the Virgin Mary (Villadoz), made in 1478, Altarpiece, Altarpiece of San Miguel, Altarpiece of the Virgin of the Rosary, Altarpiece of the Divine Shepherd
