Town in the municipality of Boñar
(CERASEUS or cherry tree as a place populated with cherry trees).
In 953, the monastery of Sahagún had possessions in this village.
Cerecedo is 2.3 kilometres from Boñar. Located between two mountains, it has a beautiful access bridge over the Porma River, with two spans.
It once belonged to the council of Boñar. Its parish church dates from the 17th century and is dedicated to San Pantaleón. Here there is a coat of arms that is said to belong to the Lady of Arintero.
It has two “caves” which are actually two copper mines. Today they are called Cueva de Arriba and Cueva de Abajo.
It celebrates its patron saint’s day on 27 July.
