Did you know that... Arnedillo

 

It is located in the heart of the rocky canyon that crosses the river Cidacos. Historically there are reviews of Arnedillo before the middle of the tenth century. In the twelfth century King Alfonso VIII of Castile, donated the town and castle to the cathedral of Calahorra.

What to see in Arnedillo?

 

We can take a pleasant walk along the Cidacos Greenway, take a tour of approximately two hours through its beautiful hermitages, or take a relaxing and healthy bath in its thermal springs, known as Pozas, which spring up on the banks of the Cidacos River. Also at the entrance of the town, in impressive limestone walls, there is a good climbing school with more than two hundred routes. Once on the Greenway, after passing through the tunnel, we immediately find a sign that points us towards the Vulture Viewpoint, an interesting place where we can observe the colony of griffon vultures that inhabit these mountains.

To discover

 

Approaching the castle, located to the north of the village, is another of the many cultural and leisure activities offered by Arnedillo. It dates very possibly from the 10th century, and only the tower and a piece of wall attached to the mountain are preserved. It belonged to the Bishops of Calahorra, it was their summer residence, later becoming a prison for rebel clerics.

Festivities

 

August 5th is the patron saint's day in honour of the Virgen de las Nieves, its patron saint. On 23 October the festivity is celebrated in honour of the co-patrons San Servando and San Germán. In January, the last Sunday, a pilgrimage is held to the hermitage of San Tirso, with a country mass, food and music.

Traditions

 

The Smoke Procession, the last Sunday in November, is a tradition celebrated around the image of San Andrés kept in the hermitage of the same name, in memory of how the locals, trying to put an end to the epidemic of black pox that devastated the region, causing a large number of deaths in 1888, went to local healers who proposed filling the streets with bonfires made of branches of grojo and rosemary in order to purify the air. In order to reinforce its healing effects, a religious image of the town was taken out in procession, that of San Andrés, protector of health. His image traveled through the village between the smoke and the epidemic abated.

 

The Legend

 

It is said that today, whoever attends the procession and breathes the smoke is protected against colds and flu.
