Sahagun was already settled by the Romans. In the 11th century, the future Castilian-Leonesian king Alfonso VI was educated in the Benedictine monastery of San Facudo y San Primitivo. As regent, he greatly promoted the town of Sahagun. Today, only ruins bear witness to the monastery.
Noteworthy are the brick churches of San Tirso, San Lorenzo and San Peregrina, built in the Mudejar style.
