The fortress walls are well conserved. Legend has it that king Sancho Garcés I, who conquered these lands, (the beginning of the X century) from the Muslims was buried here Villamayor of Monjardín was an important strategic location.

The enclave is more popularly known as the village of four lies because its name suggests it to be a great town inhabited by monks and full of gardens: "It is not a town, nor is it great, it has now monks, or indeed a garden." There is a small grocery shop that opens from March to October. The main site visited is the Romanesque church of San Andrés, from the XII century.
