The present township has risen up from the joining made in 1978 between the towns of Bergüenda and Salcedo. It seems that in the surroundings of Sobrón there was since ancient times a small fortified town known as Lantarón, as it is stated in documents from the 10th century.

In the Communion's core the church of San Cornelio and San Cipriano stands out with a preserved large window of Romanic style.

In Fontecha, its two medieval towers stand out. The bigger one called Torre de Orgaz forms a beautiful whole with a semi-detached palace and the remains of its original fortification. It was built at the end of the 15th or at the beginning of the 16th century and nowadays it gives shelter to the Micaela Portilla Workshop School. The second tower is known as Torre del Condestable and it belonged to the Solórzano lineage.

In the boundary of Bergüenda, which is on the banks of Omecillo, there is a nice bridge which some consider from Roman period. Sobrón is divided in two quarters with little distance between one another. The one situated close to the Ebro River has sport facilities and wide camp areas and adventure such as Tibetan bridges, paintball, kayaking...; The Sobrón Museum of Water will soon be opened. The landscape of this area is very broken with big cliffs that rise next to the river.

Between the towns of Leciñana del Camino and Molinilla the dolmen of the Mine is situated. It is one of the most important megalithic monuments in the province. Another of the dolmens discovered in the area is the dolmen of Lastra in the boundary of Salcedo.

The lake of Caicedo de Yuso, declared biotope, is a place of great ecological interest because among its vegetation a great variety of birds take shelter. The legend says that the lake was born from the ruin of a countryside inn that denied the charity to a beggar who proved to be the Virgin Maria.
