The Puente de Navarro mill is an example, but the most important and the only one restored is the Malemocho mill, located at the entrance of the National Park, one of the most important and the oldest flour mills, because it is mentioned in 1575 in the Relaciones Topográficas (topographical connections), ordered by Philip II.
The Borondo Inn is 3 km away from the town, in the old royal route. It is built rubble masonry, whitewashed. It has two floors, which are around three courtyards and a tower. The windows have bars, something typical in the popular architecture of the area. Built in the 16th century, it was a reference for Cervantes in the writing of Don Quixote.
