Mejorada del Campo is first mentioned in a 1247 document, as one of the several places belonging to the personal lordship of the Bishops of Segovia south of the Sistema Central.[2] Mejorada was incorporated to the Crown's dominions and properties in 1574.[3]


The town has a self built cathedral which is still under construction since 12 October 1961. It is the magnum opus of former monk, Justo Gallego Martínez. The historic Chapel of San Fausto stands in the town.
