Small municipality of the Montes de Toledo, with only 700 inhabitants, and formerly called “El Pozuelo” thanks to a small well that supplied water to the town. Over time its denomination became the current one due to the church that was built in honor of St. Martin, and by the lord of Valdepusa, owner of the lands.

This area was already inhabited at least since Visigothic times, and there are vestiges that prove its occupation since the XII century, in the area called “El Pozuelo”, where the first houses were built.
