HISTORY

The first historical mention dates from the year 1062, in a Royal Certificate granted by King Don Sancho of Navarra addressed to a nobleman, named Garcei, who was donated the royal houses of Zarratón. In the certificate, “Senior Sancio Álvarez, from Coscorrita” appears as guarantor on the part of the “infanzones”.

In the 14th century, on the 15 th November 1367, King Enrique II of Castilla granted the area of Cuzcurrita with all its properties and wealth to Don Juan Martínez de Rojas. It was not until the 16th century, when the area was officially recognised, during the reign of Felipe II, by Don Pedro Velasco and his wife. Today, their weapons can still be seen, which are carved in stone at the entrance door to the castle.

During the Middle Ages, Cuzcurrita was a walled stronghold, which was part of a defensive line for the battles between the kingdoms of Castilla and Navarra. This Rioja Alta region was always a frontier land for which the different kingdoms fought.

Belonging to Santo Domingo de la Calzada district, it was part of the province of Burgos until the creation of the new Logroño province in 1833. A year later, it was included within the Haro judicial district.

You will be able to travel back in time to learn about its history and its artistic patrimony. We will enter into its medieval layout to discover the life and customs of other times in this place. We will also enjoy walks through the natural areas of the village and we will introduce you to the people who are part of this house that welcomes you, and that is yours, Cuzcurrita de Río Tirón.
