Presentation of Pedraza

The municipality of Pedraza (473 inhabitants in 2010; 3,158 ha; municipal website) is located in the north-east of the Segovia Province, 40 km from Segovia.

Pedraza was already settled in the Celtiberian and Roman times; the theory saying that Emperor Trajan was born there, however, is not supported by any evidence. In the 11th century, following the Christian reconquest, Pedraza was made the capital of the Community of the Village and Land of Pedraza, ruling several neighboring villages.
In the 15th century, Bernardino Fernández de Velasco, Constable of Castile and the 1st Duke of Frías, became lord of Pedraza, which became one of the residences of the wealthy Velasco family. The 16th-17th centuries were the Gilded Age of Pedraza, which controlled a dense networks of transhumance roads used every year by 3 millions sheep; at the time, the tailors from Segovia were famous all over Europe, while Castilian wool was exported to Bruges and Florence. The ship-breeding crisis that broke out in the 19th century boosted the decadence of Pedraza.

The well-preserved, fortified village of Pedraza has attracted several Spanish and foreign film directors. The first known movie shot in Pedraza was Jaques Catelain's silent movie La galerie des monstres (Gallery of Monsters, 1924), followed a few years later by Florián Rey's La aldea maldita (The Cursed Village, 1929). More recently, Pedraza appeared in Jaime de Armiñán's El amor del capitán Brando (The Love of Captain Brando, 1974, starring Ana Belén) and José Luis Cuerda's Así en el cielo como en la tierra (On Earth as It Is in Heaven, 1995). Orson Welles shot in Pedraza scenes of Campanadas a medianoche (Falstaff, 1965) and of Une histoire immortelle (The Immortal Story, 1968). Some scenes of the French blockbuster La folie des grandeurs (Delusion of Grandeurs, 1971, starring Louis de Funès, Yves Montand and Alice Sapritch) were shot in Pedraza, too.
