Pinto

Pinto is a town of around 50,500 residents located 20 km south of Madrid.  The origins of the town are unknown, either founded during the Roman period or by the Moors.  In any case, the establishment of the town was well documented by the early 1300s and granted the title of villa in 1359 by Rey de Castilla Pedro I el Cruel.
