This village is situated at 700 m above sea level, at the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria. It is settled by a single permanent resident, although the population increases up to 25 or 30 inhabitants during the summer and weekends.

 In Peciña you can enjoy both the calm setting and the outstanding landscape.

Originally called Picinia, it was firstly located in the vicinity of the Romanesque Church of Santa María de la Piscina. The village moved to its current location after being razed in the 14th century AD by the troops of Enrique de Trastamara who, unable to conquer the castle of San Vicente, ordered that all its suburbs and associated villages were set on fire.

The Parish Church of San Martín, with a steep entrance staircase, stands out on the top of the village, which is characterized by its narrow streets and stone houses. The ancient laundry is also worth a visit.
