General information

Population: deserted

Location

It is located on the North of "Extremadura" in the east of the region "Las Hurdes", between 40°18´ latitude north and 6°19´ latitude west and 670 m. above the sea-level.

Access

The access is quite difficult. Take the road Ex- 204 in both senses, coming from "Coria" as well from "Salamanca". Once arriving in "Vegas de Coria" take the road to "Arrolobos".

From here we have to continue on foot, following the bank of the river to Arrofranco.

History

It is said that "Arrofranco" was more a place where shepherds built some constructions to protect their animals during night, then a real village.

Shepherds came for the rich grass fields here from areas poor in animal food, and built this place in order not to have to return. As time moved on, the place became abandoned.
