The building that houses the Town Hall of Redueña was built at the end of the 1950s, in the same line as the public buildings of the time, with granite and stone architecture. It is listed as a protected building. It is located in the Plaza de la Villa, which is the starting and finishing point of the Urban Route.
Old laundry (vicarage)
What is now the priest’s house, not long ago was a laundry which came to wash clothes women of our people well into the last century, as still remembers many of our neighbors. This was a meeting place of women, of great importance for the social life of the people. It is located on Calle Mayor.
Cross Calle Mayor
In Redueña you can see different crosses. One, located on the Calle Mayor, in the upper town (north end of town), and the other two in the cemetery (a little further away, therefore) and in the courtyard of the Church. It is thought that could form part of a “Via Crucis” or serve as signals indicative of crossroads.
There are still excellent examples in Redueña of how the old rural houses were, like those we can see in the Calle de la Luna. The buildings used to be on one level with no patio, with roofs covered in Arabic tiles and large doors on the facades. Inside there was a hall, an alcove room and the kitchen.
An old shoeing place is still preserved in Redueña, now in disuse. Formerly cows, oxen or mules were of great importance for life in the countryside. Thanks to this simple at the same time ingenious structure could be shoed the cattle, immobilizing it so that it did not suffer any damage and to facilitate the work of the blacksmith.

Gothic cemetery cross
This cross dates from the late fifteenth century and presents various details that link it to the Franciscan order, as the shields on the faces of the capital and the composite cord representing the three vows of the Order: poverty, obedience and chastity. It is situated at the southern end of the cemetery, about 300 m east of the village.
Church of St. Peter in Chains
This magnificent building was built between the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, although the origin of the tower is earlier. It has a single nave. In addition to the Renaissance façade of great value, recently restored, stand inside the wall paintings, polychrome Romanesque carving of the Virgin and a Renaissance niche.
Lintel and shield (Main Street)
In the main street we can see various lintels (top horizontal part situated on doors or windows) with inscriptions carved in stone, which can be read in some cases the construction date and the name of the builder, or a religious invocation dedicated to the virgin Mary. There is also a shield.
