In Noticia de las virtudes medicinales de la Fuente del Caño de la villa de Babilafuente Diego de Torres Villarroel describes the village of the same name. Villarroel gave his literary activity a utilitarian character, he published his works “with the benefit of subscription”. He even acknowledged that the ultimate purpose of publishing books was economic: “You will say that Torres has made a business out of making fun of himself and I will say that you are right as I am a Christian”.
The beautiful village of Babilafuente lies on a flat and grateful land, four leagues away from the great city of Salamanca. It enjoys among many distinguished privileges the honorable privilege of being the Capital of seven other very neighboring ones, all of which are in this territory appreciable additions to the County of Monte-Rey, which today is united to the great House of the Excma. Mrs. María Teresa Álvarez de Toledo, Duchess of Alba, my lady.Fragment of the work
This peaceful situation supports up to two hundred strong houses, but they are mazorrales and rough, because they are made of a coarse mud, steep on broncos tapiales of pine, which are all the squares, escodas and templates that handle in their rustic factories those cerriles Architects. Others are well made of a kind of white, docile and polished stone that is produced in those neighboring areas; and all are capable and with ample vessels to raise their families with width, and contain without hindrance the rude tools for the tillage of bread and wine; the only fruits that they try to squeeze from their terraces.
