Historical Remains from the Belchite Civil War

The first known evidence of human existence was found in Belchite in the Cueva de los Encantandos, dating from between 1800 and 1300 BC. This is an important place because of its archaeological and speleologist value.

Fuendetodos

Francisco de Goya was born here in 1746. Some of the interesting buildings include Goya's 17th century birthplace, exhibition rooms, and the Museum of Sketches and Engravings. The city takes care of its heritage and patrimony and preserves its typical architecture.

According to legends and traditions, here used to be an old primitive chapel respected by Muslims, an earlier Roman temple that burned down, and a Gothic church built in 1681 in a more modern Baroque style.

Goya's House (Fuendetodos)

Built in the early 18th century, Goya spent the first six years of his life in this house. The house is still well preserved with all its rustic and popular atmosphere. However, it was rebuilt in 1946 after the Civil War.
