Access map to Belmonte de Tajo

Located on a plain between the Horcajo and Valdecabañas hills, it formerly had different names: Pozolos and later Pozuelo de Velmonte. Alfonso VIII gave the land to the Bishop of Segovia, and after various legal actions, all the property and estates in Belmonte and within the town limits were sold to the Order of Santiago in 1295.

Pozuelo de Belmonte was given the honorable distinction of Villa by King Pedro I in 1336, when it was also granted its own jurisdiction and justice system. Following the expropriations in the 16th century, it was transferred to the Crown and became the Condado de Belmonte.
