Presentation of Fuentesoto

The municipality of Fuentesoto (178 inhabitants in 2009; 3,016 ha; municipal website) is located in the north of Segovia Province, on the borders with the Burgos and Valladolid Provinces, 75 km from Segovia. The municipality is made of the villages of Fuentesoto and Tejares.

Fuentesoto means "the thicket (soto) 's fountain (fuente). On old maps, the village sometimes appears as Soto. The early village might have developed uphill, around the St. Gregory chapel (8th-12th centuries), and might have moved down to the plains around the 18th century.
Tejares, already mentioned in 1247, was probably named after an old tilery (tejar).
