Did you know that... Lagrán

 

It is located under the watchful eye of Sierra Cantabria, in the shadow of the peaks of Palomares and Cruz del Castillo, in a small valley in which the river Ega rises and flows, to the south of the province of Álava, and together with the towns of Villaverde and Pipaón it forms the municipality of Lagrán within the Cuadrilla de Campezo-Montaña Alavesa. Although the beginnings and origins of Lagrán are not very clear, for some historians there already existed in its vicinity, in the mountains, a castle, the Castle of Toro, close to the port of the same name, is named, in the twelfth century, in the Carta Puebla that the King of Navarre Sancho VI the Wise grants to the town of Laguardia. Later, another document states that the town of Lagrán was ceded to Marshal Diego Gómez Sarmiento along with all his rights, income, civil and criminal justice, thus belonging to the Sarmientos, Counts of Salinas, and later to his heirs, the Dukes of Hijar. Towards the second half of the 15th century it passed from belonging to the Kingdom of Navarra to that of Castilla and at the beginning of the 16th century it already had the title of village.

To discover What to see in Lagrán?

 

Lagrán keeps from his hidden times of walled town some rest of wall cloth that can still be seen next to the Gate of Christ, one of its old gates. The silhouette of the parish church of Nuestra Señora, which has a beautiful 15th century Plateresque façade, stands out while watching over the life of the locality in the upper part. Evoking the 18th century and silent witness to the characters who were born there, one can see the palace of the Viana between the hamlet of Lagrán. Beautiful spots with hermitages such as San Pedro and San Bartolomé accentuate the splendid natural space that surrounds Lagrán. Visitors and walkers can enjoy the splendid natural space that surrounds Lagrán, as there are several small and long-distance walking routes that Lagrán offers, the Path of the charcoal, the Path of Mount Jaundel, the Path of San Bartolomé, in a camping area for groups.... and if what we are visiting is the Wine and Fish Route, GR 38, in Lagrán we find an Interpretation Centre.... and if what we are visiting is the Wine and Fish Route, GR 38, in Lagrán we find an Interpretation Centre.

Curiosities

 

In the foothills of the mountain range at whose feet Lagrán sits, there were several caves inhabited by hermits that later became hermitages, several of which have disappeared, such as that of Santa Julita and San Quirico, from which is preserved a cave called San Quirico or San Kiliz, and that of San Juan.

Christ Gateway Passage

The Legend

 

The Path of the Laundromat or Mojón del Avellano has posters explaining the flora and fauna of the place. It also goes through an old limestone quarry, and curiously in some of the milestones of the mountain it is said that, according to books of ancient acts, the distances between two milestones were indicated with phrases such as, "a stone's throw away" or "a trabuco's throw away".
