You can find our house going on the motorway from Madrid to Bilbao, follow the way out on the 176 kms. signed as Oquillas and Pinilla de Trasmonte. It is on the South of Burgos province between Aranda de Duero and Lerma, and 60 kms. far away from Burgos.

Oquillas is a village situated between the basin of Esgueva river and the North Face of San Lorenzo Hill. According to the historians, the word "Oquillas" means "occa", cave or hole in the ground, a latin word that could come from the amazing number of "bodegas" (wine producers) that exist in this area.

The Romanesque church dates from the 12th Century. Its apse is plain and well-balanced, its figures are in the style of the influencial Monastery at Santo Domingo de Silos, decorated with a combination of animal, and vegetable motifs. The ceiling conserves the original coffering.
