Presentation of Narros de Saldueña

The municipality of Narros de Saldueña (130 inhabitants in 2012; 944 ha) is located in the central north of Ávila Province, 40 km of Ávila.

Narros de Saldueña was established by Navarrian colonists. The village was mentioned in 1250 among the possessions of Cardinal Gil Torres, as Nafraos de Saduenna.
The domain of Narros de Saldueña was most probably established by Fernán González Dávila y Valderrábano and his wife Sancha Martínez de Rojas for their son Rodrigo, who built a castle in the early 15th century. In the beginning of the 18th century, the castle was transferred to the Duke of Montellano, and, subsequently, to Fernán Núñez' family. The castle was severely damaged during Napoléon's invasion. The tower, known as the Homage's Tower, is the oldest part of he castle; it bears the arms of the Valderrábano and Guzmán families.
