From Castrojeriz, turning off some of the Camino de Santiago in the direction heading towards the road Astudillo P405 to Palencia, we found just two miles from the small town Hinestrosa.

Historically it has always been linked to Castrojeriz. According to the cartulary of Sahún is known to have existed in 962 and in time of Peter the Cruel was lord of the town, Don Juan Fernandez de Henestrosa, Castrojeriz mayor, who is supposed, of course, inherited its current name.

Henestrosa Etymologically the name means "place of hay or place of abundant pasture for their flocks. However, in some writings it refers to as Henestrosa Socrastro that, somehow, we could interpret as pasture Castrojeriz down.

The most historic building is its gothic church, which is a beautiful classical style retablo dedicated to San Torcuato, with some Baroque details.

In our page devoted to sources and sources close to Castrojeriz, we show the famous "Spring Valdenogal" place situated a little above Hinestrosa holds plenty of fresh flowing water. We can also see on this page the famous "Fountain of Hinestrosa" whose two spouts pour water probably comes from the same place, which is at the crossroads to the cellars and the highway from Palencia, right next to the building Teleclub.
