La Vid is the main borough of the La Vid y Barrios municipal area. It is located 19 Km from Aranda de Duero, together with the monastery of Santa Maria La Vid, emblem of the village.
It was built in the 50s with the aim of housing the inhabitants of the old village Linares del Arroyo (Segovia), which was flooded during the construction of the reservoir. The National Institute of Colonization was responsible for said construction and it was named ‘Colonia de Linares de La Vid’ (‘Linares Colony of La Vid’) in memory of the citizens of the submerged Segovian village.
Monastery of Santa Maria La Vid
It is a Premonstratensian monastery in its origin and today it belongs to the Augustinians, founded in the XII century where, as legend has it, the image of la Virgen de la Vid (the Virgin Mary of the Vine) was found, in polychrome Romanesque stone.
With the support of the Abbot Iñigo López de Mendoza, the monastery achieved its biggest development in the XVI century, when the main chapel, the octagonal presbytery and the cantilevered vault were erected by Sebastián de Oria and Pedro Resines.
There we can see the only bestiary in the world that is written in Spanish. Written in 1570, the bestiary of John of Austria was written by Martín Villaverde.
