LOCATION

We are located in the village of Trescasas, district of Sonsoto. Rancho Largo Road, number 17.

Trescasas and the distric of  Sonsoto are two medieval villages. Trescasas is named after three houses that have existed here since the XIII century and were, at the time, used for sheep shearing . The centers of shearing and wool treatment were directed by the Religious Order of  the friars from "La Cartuja del Paular". From La Casa del Tio Tlesforo you can see what remains of the old shearing house in Sonsoto. The history of the village is deeply related to sheep migration, the Cañada de la Vera (old route for shepherds) and the"Honrado Consejo de la Mesta". Due to its strategic position, it became a key place in the wool market. In the XVIII century, more than 40.000 sheep were sheared here each year.

Between Trescasas and Sonsoto you can find the neo-classic style church (1774-1788), built by Carlos III. The king used to hunt in this land while staying with his Court in el Real sitio de La Granja de San Ildefonso.

Nowadays, Trescasas still retains its rural charmin, and is mainly dedicated to raising livestock.
