Descripción

Sasamón was a walled city in the Middle Ages. One of the medieval doors is still standing, with a tower that has a lancet arch, machicolations and battlements. It was built in the fifteenth century and has part of the walls next to it.

The visitor can see some ancestral houses in the village, which were built between the sixteenth and seventeenth century. They have coats of arms in their facades and belonged to families such as the Villegas, Osorio, Valtierra or Bascones. One of these houses belonged to the family of Santa Teresa, the castilian saint. At the end of the sixteenth century this saint was in the house for several days. Nowadays, it is still known as Santa Teresa’s house.
