Quintana de la Sierra

Quintana de la Sierra is a municipality of around 1,600 people. The town appears to have been founded in the Middle Ages by forest dwellers, and was a royal town until 1213 when it became a dependent of the Monastery of San Pedro de Arlanza, with that status changing in 1710. Wars heavily impacted the area, leading to instability in the local population.
