Long Description:

It is thought that the name Cenicero (ash-pan in English), can be traced back to when local shepherds left piles of ash in the bonfires on the banks of the River Ebro. Cenicero was occupied by the Arabs until 740. It was a village belonging to Nájera until 1636 when it was set up as an independent town by decree with the right to its own «gallows and pillory». Cenicero holds claim to a heroic deed during the first Carlist War: Zumalacárregui crossed the River Ebro to rob a convoy headed towards Logroño. Fifty villagers and defenders of the liberal cause took shelter in the church and held out for 26 hours. Cenicero's recently erected freedom statue recalls the events that took place in October 1834.
