Geography

It is located only 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) from the city of Salamanca and as of 2016 there are 1,828 inhabitants. [1]

The village lies 792 metres (2,598 ft) above sea level on rural farmland. The nearest village geographically is Vistaahermosa although lack of direct road connections means that the village is almost twice the distance away by road from Salamanca.

Economy

Traditionally. the village has relied on agriculture and the rearing of cattle for dairy commodities such as Milk and Cheese, taking full advantage of the market potential being to close to the market place at Salamanca. Closeness to the town market meant that local farmers often thrived as they were able to deliver their fresh goods quicker, beating off other competition. However, in recent years[ when? ] the agricultural tradition has declined somewhat with modernization and an important source of income to the area is now from tourism, from visitors who wish to be housed in the close vicinity of Salamanca yet in quieter, more rural surroundings.

Demography

At present the village lies within a certain demographic prosperity within reach of the provincial capital, but increased urban sprawl in recent years may mean that the village may become merged with the Salamanca conurbation in coming decades. In the time period of 15 years the population has nearly doubled between 1991 and 2006 with a population of 516 people in 1991 growing to an estimated 935 people in 2006.

Today the country house serves as a lodging and small hotel to accommodate recently arrived visitors to the area conveniently located near the city of Salamanca. The house is located in some 1500m² of gardens. The extensive grounds allow for local people to devise methods of diversification to increase income from tourists. Paintball has developed significantly in recent years.
