Presentation of Navalmanzano

The municipality of Navalmanzano (1,174 inhabitants in 2010; 3,279 ha; unofficial website) is located in the northwest of Segovia Province, 40 km from Segovia.

Navalmanzano was mentioned for the first time in a document of the Segovia Cathedral dated 1155, as Nava de Maçanu. Incorporated to the Community of the Town and Land of Cuéllar, Navalmanzano was granted on 24 December 1461 by Henry IV to Beltrán de la Cueva.
The village is believed to be the birth place of the conquistador Pánfilo de Narváez, the leader of a catastrophic expedition in Florida known as the Narváez Expedition, which claimed in 1528 the life of most of its 300 members, including Narváez himself.
