  • Ermita de San Antón ("Saint Anthony Abbot hermitage"). Its environment is now transformed by the construction of a mall. The hermitage had been rebuilt during the 19th century.
  • Ermita del Cristo ("Christ hermitage") In its interior is a crucified Christ that enjoys great popular fervor.
  • Iglesia parroquial de Santo Domingo de Silos ("Parish of Saint Dominique of Silos")
  • Éboli tower, where the princess of Eboli was held.
  • Centro Cultural Infanta Cristina. It was thought until recently that this building, then known as Casa de la Cadena (House of the Chain), provided accommodation for the Catholic Monarchs, but serious historical studies have disproved such a possibility.
