This tiny town of 140 inhabitants in the valley of Cidacos, in Soria’s highlands, joins the Association of Spain’s Prettiest Villages in 2017. Currently, the association represents 44 towns of fewer than 15,000 residents , but the 13 new candidates that have been admitted to this exclusive rural group push the number up to 57 this year. Dating back to pre-Roman times, Yanguas was a feudal village until the 19th century and besides its cobbled streets and drover traditions, there are architectural delights such as the Romanesque tower of San Miguel, which dates back to 1146 and shows influences from Lombardy, the castle and the 15th-century Gothic church of San Lorenzo.
