The picota


It stands on the old medieval road that linked Toledo and Valladolid, on a small granite stone mound, dominating the Alberche River Valley. This Tuscan column of about four meters high was built in the 16th century to grant jurisdiction to the Villa de Cebreros as a place for the execution of punishments and penalties. It is finished off with a Renaissance capital with four human heads oriented to the four cardinal points, finished with a truncated pyramid decorated with striations.

It is one of the few pillories that are preserved in Spain and it is worth visiting because from the Cebreros pillory you can contemplate a beautiful view.
