Presentation of Gargüera

The municipality of Gargüera (aka Gargüera de la Vera; 133 inhabitants in 2017; 5,152 ha; municipal website) is located 110 km north-east of Cáceres and 20 km east of Plasencia.
Gargüera was resettled at the end of the 13th century by Leonese, Castilian and Asturian farmers. The village was a dependency of Plasencia.
The parish church was erected in the 16th century, 1.5 km away from the village, probably on the site of an old chapel. Another oddity is the cemetery, which is adjacent to the church.
