Espirdo

From 1086 it was known as "Spiritu" and in 1247 it was renamed "Spiritu de Ruviales" because of its proximity to the village. It was already in the sixteenth century when it acquired the name of Espirdo.

The term is confined to the north by La Higuera and Brieva, the south zone by La Lastrilla, the east zone by Tizneros and the western zone La Mata de Quintanar and Bernuy de Porreros.
