Castles, monasteries and palaces

 

A process of reorganization took place in these lands following the conquests of Gormaz, San Esteban de Gormaz, Haza and Roa in the year 912 by Counts Rodríguez Téllez, Gonzalo Fernández and Nuño Núñez. This began to produce benefits, particularly from the third decade of the 11th century onwards. The development of the significant townships under Clunia, the presence of look-out towers, castles and the distribution of power between the crown, the monasteries and some important noble families and of the Communities of Villa and Tierra, with the villein knights, were to become the supports of the administrative organization of this territory. .

External signs of the institutions from this bygone world and its organizations, with its essentially medieval ways and concepts, can still be seen today in the palaces, fortresses, churches and monasteries, a faithful reflection of a reality that was to last until the 19th century with the development of the greater municipal corporations.

We are reminded of our past by the fortification of Haza, the towers of Hoyales and Caleruega, the castles of Torregalindo, Peñaranda and Coruña del Conde, the palaces of Peñaranda and Guzmán, the monastery of Santa María de la Vid and the municipal walls of Gumiel de Mercado, Aranda de Duero and Vadocondes, as well as many other items that have survived from that period of our history. Although many of our institutions and constructions date back to those medieval times, it is also true to say that modernity brought a profound transformation in the constructions and, in many cases, the buildings display Renaissance and Baroque forms.

As some of these towns and their monuments have already been discussed, let`s now look at some of those which are not included in other routes but which will appear in the route map.

La Vid

 

Torregalindo

This town, sitting in the shade of its tower the top of which has been lost, (it was owned by Señores de Vizcaya, Gonzalo Guzmán and Don Beltrán de la Cueva), reminds us of the epic times of the configuration of Castile and the process of reorganization of the lands of Roa. Worth mentioning are the layout of the town and the Romanic entrance to the parish chapel of San Juan Bautista.

 

La Aguilera

This town has preserved an interesting popular architecture. It is fascinating to visit the Franciscan convent of San Pedro Regalado, which has its origins in a 14th century hermitage but which became particularly important with the Franciscan reform and the presence of San Pedro. The royal intervention and the patronage of important figures made it possible for the convent to be built. Of particular interest are the church and the monument dedicated to the memory of the Franciscan saint.
