San Esteban

Small town of only 35 inhabitants in which the official Camino de Santiago does not get to enter. This nucleus stands out for its rich cultural heritage, in which the old parish church of San Esteban de Leces stands out, of Romanesque origin (the first documentary references to it date from 1259) and destroyed during the civil war, having been rebuilt later, preserving from its original time a window in the apse. In the vicinity of the church there is a late medieval defensive tower, dating from the 14th-15th centuries, belonging to the Ruiz de Junco family, with a square plan and three floors, with a coat of arms on the main façade.
