Located very close to Salas de los Infantes, it was partially dynamited at the beginning of the 20th century for the construction of a road. It is a hermit complex from the 8th and 9th centuries, which currently consists of 13 caves excavated in a large block of sandstone, of which several were only accessible by wooden stairs or stairs as the one existing in the only visitable. The rooms consisted of a wooden door, with a corridor leading to the cell, although there are two consisting of several cells with a single access corridor.

There must also have been a rock temple that disappeared today. For more information see its description on Condado de Castilla
