Castejón de Valdejasa

AND HIS FAMOSO ESCABECHADO (PICKLES)

Castejón de Valdejasa is in the extreme south the Comarca de las Cinco Villas. This little town, located 45 kilometres from Zaragoza, is mentioned for the first time in 1110, in the Charter of Ejea, a town located in the southern end of the territories of King Alfonso I the Battler.

However, this village dates from the Roman era. Specifically, it was on the Caesaraugusta to Pompaelo road, which started from Zaragoza through the limits of Castejón, to continue up to the medieval castle of Sora, and then to Ejea.

It is a pleasure to walk around its streets and its beautiful mountain, even if parts of the area have been seriously damaged by a fire a few years back. Amongst the places worth visiting, there are unique and well preserved buildings such as its parish church, and its chapel, located at the top of the town, dedicated to its patroness Santa Ana.

This town is renowned for preserving its culinary traditions, such as its famous pickles, which can be tasted in its bars and restaurants. Sometime in spring local villagers prepare a unique dish following the recipe of their ancestors, using rabbit or partridge meat as their main ingredient. A delightful and beautiful way to remember the local history and tradition.
