A dignitary from Peñas de San Pedro was bishop of Barbastro and a congressman for “las Cortes de Cádiz in 1812” for the province of La Mancha. His name was Juan Nepomuceno de Lera. It has been registered that way for posterity in one of the documents left in archives of the churches that are publicly exhibited.
