In the 1960s, agricultural activity unearthed evidence of a Roman-era villa at modern Rienda in Spain, which was then administratively associated with the municipality of La Artieda de Aragón (it is now part of the Sigüés municipality in Zaragosa province). Subsequent excavation revealed a large courtyard and other structures, as well as a number of mosaics.

Twenty-first century satellite imagery shows a small clearing near the coordinates recorded by IGN (whence OpenStreetMap) for Rienda, as well as an associated trail from Artieda. The immediate area is now evidently devoid of agricultural and development evidence and covered by forest.
