Fuentespina is a municipality of Burgos located in the south of the Ribera del Duero, situated at 834 meters of altitude in the Duero valley since the third quarter of the 18th century.
Its good communication and location made it possible to establish in the town the royal road that connected the Kingdom of France and Madrid, as well as the great Cañada through which the animals from the Sierra de Burgos circulated to Badajoz.

After a time of confrontations with the Council of Aranda de Duero, in 1636, Felipe IV accepted the jurisdiction of Aranda and that is when they gave the town the title of Realenga Villa. In 1642 Fuentespina is finally separated from Aranda, but always maintaining a certain dependency.
