A spectacular location and a rich heritage
Orbaneja del Castillo
Boasting a superb location forming a rocky amphitheatre, it offers spectacular views of the majestic castle. A town through which the enigmatic River Ebro flows at a depth of almost 200 metres.
The town huddles on the slopes running down to the valley. The church is located in the highest point, making it the perfect viewpoint from which to admire the valley. For centuries Mozarabs, Jews and Christians lived together in this place, conferring upon it an immense cultural wealth. Its period of greatest splendour would come in the 12th century, when pilgrims making their way along the Road to Santiago would stop and take shelter in its convent and famous hospital. This is a site rich in art, tradition and culture.
