“That’s red Aranda. I am afraid we had to put the whole town in prison and execute very many people.” (Remark made by the Conde de Vallellano to Dr Junod, Red Cross representative in Spain during the Civil War.)
A cheerful and solid Castilian working town, Aranda was spared the decline of the region by its location on an important crossroads. It’s a busy place also set on a junction of rivers that still functions as a market town and supply centre for the surrounding area. Aranda’s pride is roast lamb, for which it is famous throughout Spain; every eatery in town seems to be an asador, and the smell of cooking meat pervades the air.
