OUR EMPTY SPAIN
Municipality located in the narrowing of the Jiloca Valley, before opening to its final course towards Calatayud. It is located in a geological zone of very varied materials ranging from the Cambrian to the Quaternary.
The Rambla de Valdemiedes is world-renowned, along with the town, which keeps one of the most important records of the beginning of life in its paleontological site, declared a Site of Cultural Interest in 1997. It stands out for the diversity of fossils of the genus Trilobites, among others .
In its hamlet, the parish church of La Asunción rises, in a baroque style with a tower that, although it is simple, responds to the Mudejar tradition, being, perhaps, an old watchtower.
More important for the devotion that it attracts and that is manifested in the abundance of popular votive offerings, is the hermitage of San Mamés, on the way to Atea, one of the largest in the area. In addition to celebrating its festival with pilgrimage and dance, it is worth highlighting the mural paintings inside which, despite their technical quality, are valued as a realistic example of popular art of the s. XIX.
Also noteworthy are its numerous peirones, Virgen del Carmen, Virgen del Rosario, Las Almas, San Cristóbal, San Gregorio and San Mamés.
