The most ancient data about the occupation of these lands of Berantevilla go back to prehistorical times with settlements from the Neolithic, in the valley of the river Red till the preromanic period, which are present in the "Vetrusa" site.

The villa of Berantevilla receives the title from Fernando VI's privilege in 1299. A horizontal spot is established on the bank of the river Ayuda acting as natural fosse. A city wall surrounded it, nowadays disappeared, except for the house nº4 of the main street, which could belong to one of the towers.

There are several illustrious ancient houses in the villa, located mostly in the main street. In the paroquial church of Ntra. Sra. De la Asunción stands out the graceful tower made by Justo Antonio de Olaguibel and also the main altarpiece from the beginning of the 18th century of Churrigueresque style.

Next to the urban area on the riverbank we find the scattering Park of Linares with a football pitch, barbecues, tables and benches as well as games for children to enjoy a day in the countryside.

Some buildings of interest outside the county town are the churches of San Jorge de Santurde with a beautiful Romanic portal and hermitage of Santa María de Tobera, also Romanic from the 13th century.
