Description of the municipality

The name Arnedo is of Latin origin and means ‘sandy place’ (Arenetum).

 

During the Roman era, Arnedo was an important crossroads of two Roman roads: one from Calahorra to Numancia (near Soria) and the other from Contrebia Leukade to Varea.

 

The Christians established themselves here in the 10th century, with the town changing hands among the kingdoms of Navarre and later León, Castile and Aragon.

 

It is now highly industrialized and well-known for shoemaking.
