ECONOMY

   Rillo is, or maybe was, fundamentally an agricultural village, its income comes from wheat, sunflower, barley or livestock. The current production may be higher than the previously, but this has nothing in common with what the old people from Rillo remember.To enlarge: chimenea de la fabrica de resinas.

   The fact is that Rillo, just like the rest of Spain, does not have an agrarian economy any longer. The money to build the new houses that have appeared in Rillo in recent years does not come from agriculture, but from the people living in Madrid, Barcelona and Guadalajara, and the image of the old village has changed. The reason? tourism in August when everybody goes there. And, 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.

HISTORY

   Rillo is a village built up over traditional settlements of earlier civilizations. Near the village, following the Old stream, we can find the remains of a celtic settlement, where some pottery and metallic objects were found, proving it existenced several centuries before Christ.To enlarge: aljibe de Molina la Vieja. Also the signs of old fortifications lead old chroniclers to believe that there might have been a strong 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.
