The main aim of this study is to analyse the carved church of San Martin of Villamoros in León (Spain) as well as its historical circumstances through the High Medieval documents that have been kept in connection with this church. In the same way, we try to highlight the importance of this church into this territory and its evident relation with the monarchy. Moreover, we try to show the different church´s owners during its history. From it, we draw important conclusions as regards the territorial organization of this area during the aforementioned chronological period. Likewise, we go more deeply into the analysis of its architectural typology, since, in spite of being a simple room, it has a lot of difficulties when it comes to establish a right date for it. In spite of, through the present study we try to show the importance of these carved architectures have during the High Medieval period as well as currently, since even nowadays they are especially important for the knowledge of this historical time.
