Cuzcurrita de Río Tirón, known as Cuzcurrita is a village in the province and autonomous community of La Rioja, Spain. The municipality covers an area of and as of 2011 had a population of 544 people.HistoryThe oldest known document referring to the village dates from 1062 and is a royal bond issued by King Sancho Garcés IV of Navarre in which several houses/crown land in Zarratón are ceded to the noble García Garcei. The place name used is Coscorrita.In 1086, in the tale of the miracle of Santo Domingo de Silos, a person called Servando is named as being a native of Cuzcurrita.The jurisdiction of Miranda de Ebro mentioned the existence of Quosquorrita at the end of the 11th century.On 15 November 1367, the monarch Enrique II of Castile rewarded Juan Martínez de Rojas, by giving him Señorío de Cuzcurrita with all its territories and rights.In the 16th century, under the reign of Phillip II of Spain, Pedro Velasco, ninth Señor of Cuzcurrita, by virtue of his marriage to Marta de Rojas y Osorio, founded an entailed estate mayorazgo, carving his herald over the door of the castle as can be seen today.This castle was built by the Suárez de Figueroa at the end of the 14th or the beginning of the 15th century. In the 19th century, after the laws abolishing lords and manors (señoríos and mayorazgos), it continued to belong for some years to the descendants of the Velasco-Rojas family. Afterwards it was successively bought and sold until 1945 when its new owners restored the property to be used as a home.
