General Details

Tobar is located in a valley, surrounded of small hills, the Hormazuela river crosses the village from North to South.

The economy is based on agricultural farmers, mainly cultivating cereals, wheat and barley. The soil has lots of lime, but it is very fertile, providing good harvests most years.

Tobar has what is called a continental climate, very cold in winter and very hot in summer. The minimum temperature in winter can get to -10 °C, however, in Summer the temperature can get to 35 o 40 C°, but summer evenings are cold, getting sometimes to 10 C°.

In a nutshell we can say that Tobar is a typical Castilian village, with houses built with stone and few people actually living there.
