Presentation of Quer

The municipality of Quer (739 inhabitants in 2014, 1,463 ha; municipal website) is located 15 km of Guadalajara.

Quer was first mentioned on 6 March 1432, when King of Castile John II offered to Iñigo López de Mendoza, as a reward for his support against the kings of Navarre and Aragón, several villages located near Guadalajara, Quer included. At the time, Quer belonged to Catalina, the king's sister. On 15 March 1489, Pedro Gómez de Mendoza, Bishop of Sigüenza, swapped with Alvar Gómez his possessions in Guadalajara for the town of Maqueda.

Quer is the birth place of the Jesuit father and humanist Juan Páez de Castro (c. 1512-1570). Appointed Chronicler and Royal Chaplain of King Charles I (1555), he attended the Council of Trent. A scholar in Latin, Greek, Arab and Italian, Páez de Castro collected ancient manuscripts and codices. Philip II acquired his library after his death. His memoir Sobre la utilidad de juntar una buena biblioteca (1556) was a call for the establishemnt of a State library.
