Villamantilla is a municipality of the Community of Madrid, Spain.

It is mostly known because at its head is the only Black mayor of Spain, Juan Antonio de la Morena (for the right-wing Partido Popular), born from a Spanish father and a mother from (former Spanish colony) Equatorial Guinea. He was first elected in 2007 (57.83% for the PP list), and reelected in 2011 (62.64%). His father, uncle and grandfather had already been mayors or vice-mayors of the town, including under Franco's dictatorship.[1] [2] [3]
