The surname Castrillon is one of the oldest and most distinguished families of Spain. The original bearer of the name Castrillon, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in one of the places named Castrothe, which is the name of many places in Spain. The place-name Castro is derived from the Latin word "castrum," which means "fortress." During the Reconquista, there were numerous fortresses in the Iberian Peninsula that were used as a refuge for the Christian troops who fought against the Muslim Moors. The fortresses also protected the civilian population and the new settlers in the area.
