   Rillo was, an agricultural village, its income comes from wheat, sunflower, barley or livestock. The current production may be higher than the previous one, though this has nothing in common with what the elders from Rillo remember.

    The fact that Rillo, just like the rest of Spain, doesn't have an agrarian economy any more. The money to build the new houses that have appeared in Rillo in recent years doesn't come from agriculture, but from the people living in Madrid, Barcelona and Guadalajara, the image of the old village has changed. The reason? Tourism in August when everybody goes there. Also, we can’t forget public money from Guadalajara (Diputación Provincial), Toledo (Junta de Comunidades de Castilla-La Mancha) and Madrid (Administración Central) among other places.

   Rillo is a village built up over traditional settlements of earlier civilizations. Near the village, following the Old stream, we can find remains of a celt-iberian settlement, where some pottery and metallic objects were found, proving its existence several centuries before Christ. Also the signs of old fortifications lead certain chroniclers to believe that there might have been a castle. It seems that this tradition was always firmly followed, we know that until the XVI century and even later, the Moors from Molina went in pilgrimage to Rillo because they believed that in those ruins were the foundations of their old mosque.
