About Valdecaballeros Municipality

Valdecaballeros is located to the south west of Castiblanco, on the left bank of the Guadiana, occupying one of the edges of Siberia, on the border with the Villuercas domains.

Access to the town is currently via a well-built road, albeit a winding one, which runs along the edge of the García Sola or Puerto Peña reservoir, between places of extraordinary scenic splendor.

The first documentary historical data is from the donation made by King Sancho IV, on May 15, 1293, to Talavera of three pastures, which included what was later called Dehesa de los Guadalupes, in whose territory already the place of Halia was found and those of Castilblanco and Valdecaballeros were created and repopulated.
