Allariz historic quarter
Allariz was a residence of kings in the Medieval period, including King Alfonso X, “O Sabio” (the Wise). Set in the Arnoia valley, the town centre still preserves evidence of its medieval past.
From 1971 onwards, when it was listed as a Historic Artistic Site, Allariz’s historic quarter underwent a series of renovation and refurbishment work that earned it a European Urban and Regional Planning Award. Renovated buildings occupied once again, public and commercial spaces filled with local residents and visitors walking along the streets every day.
It’s a pleasure to stroll through the well maintained cobbled streets and enjoy the old buildings standing on either side.
