, its famous market gardens ("La Mejana"), the Natural Park of Las Bardenas Reales
and the river Ebro, it is accessible to all publics.
Inhabited since the Second Iron Age, the castle that was built in the Middle Ages after the Reconquista was later the residence of King Sancho VII 'the Strong'. It was extended in the 14th
century by King Carlos III 'the Noble' of Navarre and later destroyed by order of Cardinal Cisneros in the 16th
century, once the Kingdom of Navarre had been conquered. It was abandoned after and became a fortress of the Carlist forces in the 19th
century. The central building still stands, and on its highest part a statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ was installed in the 1940s
