Historically all the valley of Kuartango was part of the Manor of Ayala until its disintegration in the 16th century. In the Medieval period there were some tower-houses, many of them disappeared, such as the one of Corcuera in Luna, the one of Artazuela in Jócano…In Jócano have been discovered prehistoric sites interesting cave paintings in the caves of Solacueva with interesting cave paintings.

In Zuazo de Cuartango the building of the old spa is preserved on the banks of the river, camp place in summer time.
