It was created in the 10th century as a fortress for the people of Navarre and together with the Davalillo castle it formed a line of defence. The town inherited the chains depicted on the shield from the kingdom of Navarre, which was the ruling power.

Easter: The Medieval «Picaos» tradition. Since the 16th century, the Vera Cruz Guild has organised traditional processions and flagellations during Easter, on Holy Thursday and Good Friday, during the Cruz de Mayo spring festivities and in September.
The most important of these is the «picaos» procession, which is when the guild's penitents whip themselves in public. This is an ancient tradition that has not been seen in the rest of Spain for centuries. The ritual begins at the feet of the image of La Dolorosa. The penitents take off their grey capes and begin to flog their naked backs using a whip made of cotton rope. Guild members then prick their backs with glass so that they bleed.

-Surrounding area: The 11th century Romanesque Basilica of Santa María de la Piscina. The single nave in this church leads to a semi-circular apse. It was founded in 1088 by prince Ramiro.

He ordered this church to be built in her honour and it was given her name. The villages of Peciña and Rivas de Tereso, forests and hiking.

The city is a beautiful stop on the Way of St. James. It is linked to Santo Domingo, who was born in Vitoria, and to his building work on the Roman road. The city was settled and grew as a result of the pilgrim's hospital founded by the Saint around the second half of the 12th century. The bridge spanning the River Oja, which helped pilgrims on their way, also contributed to the city's development. The city grew as a result of the inn, then later due to the Way of St. James and it became a considerable artistic, religious and financial centre. It became more powerful in the late Middle Ages.


In August, there is a play about the miracles of the saint called «Los Milagros del santo», and during the December bank holiday to celebrate the constitution there is a «Medieval Market». Of interest: visit the real cockerel and hen in the cathedral.


On the 25 April, the first day of the festival, members of the guild walk the streets of the town using a feather to paint blue marks on the faces of the young people chosen to take part in the procession. From the 1 May onwards, a drummer walks through the town banging a drum to represent the Saint's steps as he guided the pilgrims. On the 10 May, there is a procession of sheep to remember Alfonso I of Aragón's 1112 order, which stated that the town's livestock could graze freely on the kingdom's mountains. On this day, oak branches are blessed and there is a procession of Prioresses. The Pan del Santo procession takes place the following day. A child carrying a bread figure of the hanged pilgrim leads the procession, followed by the maidens. The Wheel Procession also takes place on this day. The Saint's death is remembered on the 22 with a shared lunch, mass in the cathedral and then the procession. During the festivities there are open-air dances, bull fighting and all kinds of other events.
