1.Route of the Fountains

Legend says that during the medieval period (10th century), Uncastilo was a commercially thriving town of the Kingdom of Navarre ruled by Sancho Garcés II. This town was located on the border between the Christian and the Islamic world ruled by Almanzor, chancellor of the Caliphate of Cordoba.  Despite the neutrality pact between both kingdoms, Sancho Garcés attacked Muslim settlements on the border, near Uncastillo.  Tired of these skirmishes, Almanzor ordered his men to take 50 knights hostage in order to guarantee the Christian king would no longer attack Muslim settlements. What actually happened to those knights? Is the story legend or reality? When you reach the end of your Trail of Legend indicated as PR_Z-115 “Route of the Fountains”, do not hesitate to visit the Pre-Pyrenees Sacred Art Interpretation Centre (Centro de Interpretación de Arte Sacro del Prepirineo) and find out.
