vista_bueñaDespite its small size and set amidst two hills, this town have some elements of architectural interest. In its urban area you can go through its streets and visit the Parish Church of La Asunción Nuestra Señora. It can be highlighted the use of the traditional architecture, characterised by using concrete block construction and tapial, as it can be seen at some housing and other buildings.

The chapel of Saint Vicente Mártir dominates the town together with the remains of the castle, which preserves what used to be a turret, that have been reused as a pigeon loft. On the top of the hill you will also find a viewpoint with an interesting information panel and a beautiful scenery of the village.

But if this town is well known is because of its important paleontological site located in the slope of the mountain next to the village. It is about fossil footprints called “Megaplanolites ibericus”, which are unique in the European register of fossils and catalogued as an international point of geological interest.

Its surface represents a hunting scene engraved on the metal by using a chisel. This vessel is exhibited at the National Archaeological Museum.
