Aranda de Duero information
Aranda de Duero is a great municipality in the
province of Burgos, which lived a flourishing period in the late
15th century, under the rule of Enrique IV.
From its rich architectural heritage we must stop at the 15th to 16th-century, Isabelline-Gothic church of Santa María, whose southern façade was fashioned as a great reredos, with relief scenes of the Adoration of the Magi; the church of San Juan Bautista, site of the Aranda Council, with a beautiful main front made of nine impressive archivolts; the Palace of Verdugo, from the 15th century; the sanctuary of the Virgin of Viñas, from the 17th century, situated in the outskirts; the palace of Colmenares; the Romanesque bridge, and numerous ancestral homes.
