Did you know that... Castildelgado

 

Located in the so-called Riojilla Burgalesa, in the shadow of the Sierra de La Demanda, it is the second village on the French Way of Saint James, in Burgos. Its foundation is referenced in the tenth century with the name of Villa de Pun, playing at that time an important role in the line of defense against Muslims and other kingdoms.

Castildelgado

A little more history

 

Alfonso VII founded here, around 1,136, a pilgrims' hospital. In the 16th century, when the bishop of Lugo y Jaén and archbishop of Burgos, Gil Delgado, born in the town, acquired the lordship of the town, he called it Castildelgado.

To discover What to see in Castildelgado?

 

In addition to the Casa de Gil Delgado (16th-17th century) and the Casa de los Condes de Berberana (House of the Counts of Berberana) with artistic coffered ceilings and grilles, in the parish church of San Pedro, in the late Gothic style of the 16th century and where the remains of his illustrious son, from whom the town takes its name, rest, we can admire a beautiful 13th century carving of the Virgin Mary with the Child. We must also mention the hermitage of Santa María la Real del Campo which, although it has later additions, its oldest part dates from the 13th century.

Festivities

 

On September 16 is celebrated the feast of the Virgen del Campo and Thanksgiving. On 5 February they celebrate the festivity of Santa Águeda.

 

Traditions

 

On the day of Santa Águeda, 5 February, after mass, everyone gets together to taste sweet wine. A pilgrimage to San Vítores is held in mid-June.

 

The Legend

 

The centre of the altar of the hermitage of Santa María la Real del Campo is occupied by a carving with this legend remembered by its neighbours: In the times of Alfonso VII, a cart passed through the town that carried the image of the Virgin on its way to Tierra de Campos. When the animals arrived in Castildelgado, they did not want to continue advancing, so the authorities decided that the carving would remain there and, in passing, a pilgrim hospital would be built (later also dedicated to the sick) of which today, unfortunately, there are no remains, and next to the hospital, a hermitage to honour the Virgin.
