The ruins of S. Pedro de la Mata are located in the middle of the countryside, at about 3 km southwest of the village (pedanía) of Casalgordo, in the municipality of Sonseca (province of Toledo, Castile-La Mancha, Spain). The place can be reached by a dirt road starting west of the church of Casalgordo. Nowadays S. Pedro de la Mata is completely in ruins, but the original foundations of a church can be clearly seen because they are dig in a large and quite flat granite boulder embedded in the soil. Actually, S. Pedro de la Mata is a kind of semi-cave construction. Some fragments of walls and a couple of arches can also be seen, but it is uncertain whether they are original or not. Appears in some publications as San Pedro de Arisgotas or Casalgordo for nearby towns.
