Hornachos

Hornachos is a municipality with around 3,500 residents. Humans have lived in the area since at least the Neolithic period, and it became an active settlement in the Roman period when it was along the road between Augusta Emerita and Alange. The town was conquered by the Moors in 711, who built a large fortress in the town. It was then conquered by the Christians during the Reconquista and continued to have a large Moorish population. When the Moors were finally expelled by Royal Decree, the town went into economic decline. The townsaw a large number of its population tried in front of the Inquisition for being followers of Mohamad following the expulsion of the Moors by Royal Decree.
