Puebla de Sanabria is a small town located in the North East of the province of Zamora in Spain, between the rivers Tera and Castro. Well known as one of the oldest settlements of Zamora, its roots could get to be documented around year 509 where it appears in a record from the Council of Lugo. Some authors have the opinion that the information here found refers to the whole region instead referring only to the town. More accurate documentation can be found around the 10th century in which existed as "urbe Senabrie" indicated as organization center for its surrounding area.

Its main monuments are the wonderful castle built around 16th century by the Count of Benavente, the romanic church "iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Azogue" (12th century), and the isabeline town hall (16th century).

Nowadays is the economic and political centre of Sanabria (Senabria, in Leonese language). A nice and quiet place in which tourism finds it place in the search for tranquility.
