The name of Valdecolmenas is a transformation of "Valle de las Colmenas," translated as "Beehive Valley," that was the original.
This resulted in extreme curiosity that the town named "Valdecolmenas de Abajo" (Lower Valdecolmenas) found itself to be situated at a higher elevation than the town named "Valdecolmenas de Arriba," (Upper Valdecolmenas). The origin of this unusual name can be traced to the Middle Ages, when the names given were based, apparently, on their position with respect to the major river that runs through the Valley.
