Redecilla del Camino

A little more history

 

Its origin is documented around the year 1,000, although there were previous settlements, since the habitability of the area allowed the first settlers to live with certain security before the possible invading peoples, who never fully conquered the region. Redecilla del Camino always belonged to the bishopric of Calahorra and was the Jacobean village of Burgos with the largest number of hermitages.

What to see in Redecilla del Camino?

To discover

 

But what cannot be missed is inside its parish church, rebuilt in the seventeenth century but retains medieval remains at its head, and is the Baptismal font, famous throughout the Camino and one of the most representative examples of Spanish Romanesque, the twelfth century. Its top, supported by eight columns, is spherical and has carved around its perimeter, small towers, arches and galleries covered with a canopy that resemble a fortress or city, as representing the Heavenly Jerusalem.

 

Festivities

 

On August 16 and in honor of the Virgin of Ayago and the patron saint of the town San Roque, celebrations are organized and 12 dancers accompanied by the cahiburrio perform traditional dances. The third week of August is the Thanksgiving festivities.

Traditions

 

At the end of August, the pilgrimage goes to Nuestra Señora de Ayago. The hermitage is about 5 kilometres south of the town centre of Redecilla and is of popular construction with Baroque influences.

 

Curiosities

 

This town must have had an important Francos settlement, because by 1.196 it is known as Rediziella de Francos. It also had 2 hospitals, one of them the one of San Lázaro, in the center of the village near the church, it has come to our days to have been restored and rehabilitated as a hostel.

 

Leyenda

 

The name of Ayago comes from the appearance, according to legend, of the Sacred Image of the Virgin in the trunk of a beech tree in the mountain that today is called, Dehesa de Redecilla. This carving is venerated in the hermitage that was the object of the pilgrimage. The first temple that was built in the same place of its appearance, is of unknown time and the current one, located in the same place, dates from the years 1709 to 1730.
