Dos Torres – Los Pedroches Valley
Dos Torres is situated in the central area of Los Pedroches, 6 km from the C-411. It has an extension of 144.1 km2.
Its origin lies in the emergence and development of two ancient villages: Torremilano and Torrefranca. It was these two villages, in Roman times, which were possessions in the “cordubense” legal department. Its actual origin dates back to 1352.
The development of Torremilano after the conquest had to be important because in 1771 the town was within the network of the jurisdiction of the Siete Villas de los Pedroches, then under the control of the marquisates del Carpio, particularly since 1660, when they acquired the rights in the region, after the purchase from Philip IV.
On May 4, 1836 there came a break in the traditional way of common enjoyment of pastures in the villas of Los Pedroches. After this came the redistribution of the land among themselves, also to be shared with the growing Torremilano. This was to be critical to its evolution, since, in December 1839 was published a government resolution ordering the merger of Torrefranca and Torremilano under the name of Dos Torres (Two Towers).
