After the campaigns of Alfonso I of Asturias (739-757) against the Moors, the city lay an abandoned in the largely empty buffer zone between Moors and Christians known at the time as "The Desert of the Duero" and was part of the "Repoblación" (repopulation) effort carried out a century later, during the reign of Ordoño I of Asturias (850-866).
