Imposing brick mass only reinforced by the limestone of the buttresses.
The current church was built by the Fonseca family, also builder of the famous castle, and served as a pantheon for the remains of some of the most illustrious members of this family in the sixteenth century and even one of the seventeenth century.
It was built on an earlier church, in Romanesque style, as shown by the lower part of the tower, which belonged to the old church and served as the base for the elevation of the current tower; this lower body, Romanesque, was worked in lime and ridge, forming a double row of blind arcades, separated by a vertical central navi.
The works, in which Gil de Hontañón seems to have intervened decisively, due to indirect information contained in the Segovia cathedral factory, ended in 1531 and thus served as a mausoleum for the members of the Fonseca family linked to the town.
Wall built in the 12th century in stone and slate, it contains the so-called Puerta de la Villa which is one of the four through which the city could be accessed, some 200 meters. On its south side, two pre-Roman granite zoomorphic sculptures representing two boars can be seen. On its north side can be seen the bust of the Roman emperor Theodosius the Great who was born in the town in the year 347.
Slender Mudejar tower, worked in masonry in the years after the reconquest of these territories of Castilian Extremadura by the Castilian monarch Alfonso VI.
The old Roman and Visigothic city of Cauca, which had to remain populated during the period of Islamic rule, was chosen as a stronghold, head of territory as a Villa around which the Community of Villa and Tierra de Coca was arranged.
In the interior of the renovated walled enclosure several churches were built: Santa María, San Adrián, San Justo and Pastor and the one that had this tower, San Nicolás.
It was ordered to be built by D. Alonso de Fonseca after obtaining permission from King Juan II of Castile in 1,453. Construction seems to end at the end of the 15th century. We know that in 1462 a mint for the issue of Castilian and Portuguese currency operated in Coca that would serve to pay for the labor involved in it.
It is a tall imperial building, dating from the 1st or 2nd century after Christ, of unknown functionality but which, without a doubt, was related to water. The entire left part was a large pond whose lining today has disappeared. For this reason it could be a house with hot springs or a large monumental fountain, but in both cases with two floors.
It preserves a collection of Pompeian-style stucco painted on the walls. They are arranged imitating panels and the conserved themes are always geometric. These stuccoes have the particularity of reaching a height of approximately 2 meters, being the ones that are the highest in the entire northern plateau.
It is possible that this construction is related to the villa of Theodosius the Great whose location is very close.
The building of Los Cinco Caños is located to the north of the town of Coca, where the Camino Real de Valladolid used to be, adjacent to an old resin factory, about a hundred meters from the Puente Grande, as it is where the Cañada and the Cordel de Santillana.
Built in brick, it is made up of three bodies; the two sides contain large basins, designed for laundry rooms. In both, the entrance is made through doors located on the east side of the building and they are perfectly bricked up and roofed, with which they could be used even in the most adverse conditions; They also have abundant light thanks to the large windows that open on the walls.
The building has a wooden framework completed with iron and a four-pane arrangement. Support the set on the four side walls. The structure is completed by the two walls, lower in height, which delimit the space of the fountain itself from that of the pylons. On the east lunette of the roof is, with tiles of different colors, the legend «1904».
The fountain, worked in large granite blocks, has, hence the name, five pipes, which supply abundant water. This entire strip of the building opens on the east side and, in the background, behind a floor that is now tiled, the fountain appears, composed of a pool into which the water falls (which drains with great capacity), a lower body composed of of three large stone blocks, the first pipes being arranged in the central one. On this floor there is an architrave line that separates it from the second body, rather an attic, since it only continues in the central part. It is arranged in a large stone block that simulates the existence of fins and ends in a semicircular eardrum.
Due to its location at the confluence of two rivers and a stream, access to the Villa de Coca must necessarily be done by crossing a bridge.
Of the different bridges that the Villa has, the two most important are the so-called «Big Bridge» on the Eresma River and «Small Bridge» on the Voltoya. Both have been reinforced on different occasions, necessary reinforcement but sometimes unfortunate execution.
In the top view of the «Big Bridge» you can see in more detail the metal railing as well as fastenings of the metal structure with which it was reinforced the bridge.
The «Small Bridge» is the oldest of all of the villa.
Located on the Voltoya River is built in masonry, it consists of two pointed eyes of Gothic style.
The town of Coca, located in the region of «Tierra de Pinares», has an important pine forest mass, both resin pine and stone pine. The rapid detection of fire sources is vital for the conservation of this environment.
The Fire Surveillance Tower plays a fundamental role in this task, from its privileged position at the top of the tower the watchman has a complete view of the pine forest and if necessary can give an early warning to come the means of firefighting to the place where the focus of the fire is located and so it can be controlled and subsequently extinguished with the minimum of damage.
In collaboration with other towers scattered around nearby locations, the position of the fire is triangulated giving a precise location of its location to the means of extinction, both terrestrial and aerial.
The tower with a metallic structure exceeds 20 meters in height and has a glazed surveillance post that allows the watchman a 360 degrees view.
