Did you know that... Badarán

 

It is located in the Valley of San Millán also known as the Cárdenas River. It is known from prehistoric remains that the area was already inhabited in the Palaeolithic period, as well as remains of Roman settlements have also been discovered. But the first documented data are from the 10th century in which a transfer of Badarán to the Abbot of San Millán de la Cogolla is described. In the 12th century it was granted administrative independence by Doña Urraca, becoming a royal town, although Badarán continued to be linked to the Monastery of San Millán both spiritually and economically and materially. In the 14th century and after the union of the locality with other nearby villages, the municipality of Badarán was formed. In 1926 Alfonso XIII granted Pío García Escudero y Ubago, who was born in Badarán and was Deputy Governor of the Bank of Spain, the title of Count of Badarán, thus becoming the first Count of the locality.

In Badarán, walking along the Calle Real you can see beautiful manor houses with coats of arms on the facades, as well as interesting buildings built in ashlar stone or boulders and brick. Its parish church is dedicated to the Virgen de la Expectación (Virgin of Expectation) and dates back to the 17th century.
