Menagarai (the name of the village), While its official history begins in 1114, when his name was documented as toponymic of a person, but the occupation of this territory was a few thousand years earlier, in the prehistoric time.

Its situation as a step on the road that linked the coast with Castile and the Royal Court, favored the emergence of a core around the Church of St. Peter, and there it was where under the shadow of a pear-tree, the meetings of the council were done.

In this town two zones can be distinguished: the main body of constructions, next to the road, and diverse districts dispersed by the extension of the village. Most of the buildings are rural-typical constructions, many worthy of being admired, among them some that are antique manors, palaces and monasteries.

The parish of St. Peter, situated on a dominant hill, was built in the advanced XVIII century, in the transition from Baroque to neoclassical. A magnificent altarpiece of the Saint presides over the temple.
