Villarreal de San Carlos is a community with about 25 inhabitants. It was founded in the 18th century by the king Carlos III - that's were the name originates from - to control the bandits that attacked the travellers on their way from Plasencia to Trujillo. That is way it was given a military base with a jail and a vicarage by the church.
Albeit the rights offered to all those who would live in the village, it never became a dependency of the municipality of Serradilla.
