A little over forty minutes by car we will arrive at Carpio de Tajo. The name of this town is due to a fortress that was located next to the river, exactly in the Carpio stream, and that was called “la carpía”, from the Iberian and Roman times. Currently there is no trace of that fortress.

The Church of San Miguel Arcángel, with a Latin cross and divided into three naves, is quite interesting. Highlights the coffered ceiling of its central nave, and the Mudejar decoration of the presbytery. Some altarpieces from the Renaissance and Baroque times are also striking.It can be visited respecting the cult.

Another religious building that we can visit is the Hermitage of Ronda, which is located on the outskirts of the urban area.

The Palacio de la Sierrecilla is also worth mentioning, and to visit it we must consult the City Hall.
