Presentation of Marcilla de Campos

The municipality of Marcilla de Campos (47 inhabitants in 2010; 2,186 ha; municipal website) is located 40 km from Palencia.

Marcilla seems to have been named for its resettler Marcus (but see the coat of arms), with the diminutive suffix -illa, forming the old name Marciella. A Roman estate (villa) was excavated in the place called Los Cantos, which seems to have superseded a much older settlement dating back to the Age of Bronze.
