Ilche is the principal town of a district that includes the villages of Fornillos, Monesma, Morilla, Permisán and Odina. They are spread across a great agricultural plain, traditionally used for the production of various grains and recently transformed by the introduction of irrigation systems.  

The church of San Juan Bautista (St. John the Baptist) was built in the 18th century. Tired of seeing the church in a ruinous state, the local residents recently joined forces and succeeded in covering the nave with a new flat roof.

In the same vicinity lie the remains of the medievalGramapán Castle. The height of the hill where it sits accentuated its vertical position and thus increased the effectiveness of its defences. The remains of a tower can still be made out, and include grand ashlars and two battlements.

Ilche celebrates the fiestas of San Cosme and San Damián on the 26th of September.
