NUESTRA ESPAÑA VACÍA
Small town nestled in the upper part of a hill, between the Sierras de Cucalón and del Peco, of the Iberian Mountain Range. It has an altitude above sea level of 1,023 meters. Carved stone tools were found that show the occupation of the territory since Neolithic times.
The abundance of springs, with little flow, near the inhabited nucleus, was the main characteristic that he included in the name of the town, Fombuena de "Fuente buena", serving as an excellent claim to attract settlers in the 12th century, after the reconquest . Among these springs, the group formed by the Fuente El Espino in the shape of a pointed arch (16th century) and the laundry stand out.
Located near the Cabezo de Santa Catalina, an important accumulation of fossils of great scientific interest has been found, being a point of international reference.
In the surroundings of Fombuena, remains of several Celtiberian settlements have been found and, close to these, we can visit a natural site of great value: the famous Piedra del Tormo, a huge quartzite block on which an oak tree is perched.
We highlight the 17th century church dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption, with a beautiful baroque interior with altarpieces from the same period and the peirones of San Antón, San Gervasio and San Protasio.
Strolling we will discover numerous interesting corners such as: old charcoal kilns and lime kilns, wide expanses of holm oaks and oaks, head poplar, centenary peirones, millenary mining operations, etc. It was a key place of the Civil War in our region, within the dispute of Belchite and Battle of Aragon. As a result of the role that the municipality played in the war, there have been remains in the surroundings of the town of the trenches and other vestiges of that time.
