Presentation of Fuente el Fresno

The municipality of Fuente el Fresno (3,253 inhabitants in 2018; 11,946 ha; municipal website) is located on the border with the Province of Toledo, 35 km north of Ciudad Real.

Fuente del Fresno belonged to the Commandery of Malagón, ruled by the Order of Calatrava from the castle of the same name. In 1195, the alliance of the taifas (Moorish kingdoms) and the Almohads defeated Alfonso VIII in the battle of Alarcos; they subsequently seized the castle of Malagón and defeated the Christians in the battle of Puerto de la Matanza. In 1212, Alfonso VIII and the knights of Calatrava reconquered the castle, without any mercy of compassion for its Moorish defenders, who were all executed. Fuente del Fresno was mentioned in 1245, as La Fuente (The Fountain), a small village grouped around a church.

Ares Pardo Saavedra, Marshal of Castile and lord of Paracuellos, acquired on 14 January 1548 the Commandery of Malagón, officially "The Mounts and Lands of the State of Malagón and its hamlets". The new lord restricted the inhabitant's liberties, which resulted in a court case; on 5 May 1552, the lord and Garci Gonzalez, Mayor of Malagón, signed a Concord Act.
Fuente del Fresno was granted the title of villa on 15 December 1750 by King Ferdinand VI.
