Did you know that... Arnedo

 

It is situated in the so-called Hoya de Arnedo, on the banks of the Cidacos. Arnedo is surrounded by a group of mountains and rocks of conglomerates and sandstones, which could be the reason why in remote times it was referred to and figured with the Latin term of Arenetum (sand platform) from which its name derives.

Arnedo

A little more history

 

The archaeological remains that have been found date back to the Neolithic, having settled in these lands Celtiberians, perhaps berones or pelendones, then came the Romans in the second century BC until the fifth century, later the Visigoths and then was occupied by the Arabs. In 1246 it was linked to the Crown of Castile.

What to see in Arnedo?

 

In Arnedo, in addition to enjoying its gastronomy, strolling and visiting its shops, we have a wide range of activities. Visiting its most representative buildings, with their different architectural styles, we will learn a little about its history and evolution. Its Muslim castle, without a doubt, because in addition to its typology, some Arab chronicles testify to it as one of the strongest defences against Christians. The Monastery of Vico, whose current building has passed through the centuries through different stages of construction, had its origin in the caves-church of the Visigothic anchorites.

To discover

 

The Cerro de San Miguel, which is situated on one of the hills surrounding Arnedo, tells us about its archaeological remains and sites, how the different stages of the history of the Arnedo environment are being followed and superimposed, from a first settlement at the end of the Bronze - First Iron Age, a settlement in the second Iron Age, Celtiberian, to a necropolis in the High Middle Ages. It also houses a true cave complex, an important number of chambers and galleries, connected to each other, thus taking advantage of the limit of the interior of this hill and together with the countless pillars that hold the roofs, has given it the deserved name of Cave of the Hundred Pillars. There is a theory about the original purpose of this singular set, which makes us think by references that it could have been a monastery. Museums and exhibition halls, the Olive Oil and Olive Tree Route, as well as interesting walks through nature, along paths and ways, accessible to most people, which will allow us to get into little-known places, but no less beautiful in their surroundings, are other activities we can opt for.

Traditions

 

On September 27, the traditional Robo de los Santos is staged. The people of Andosilla go to Arnedo to procession the Saints, whose relics, according to legend, disappeared from their hermitage of La Santa Cruz, and to the cry of A Navarra with Them they run trying to recover the images, something that the arnedanos prevent them, demonstrating in this way their rights over the images.
