History

The Aragonese Way is not the oldest one that exists. It probably dates back to the 11th century, when the first kings of Aragon decided to rebuild and improve the communications network of their territory. They repaired Roman roads, built bridges, as well as shelters and baths on the main routes. The change was driven by the arrival of pilgrims and travellers at the port of Somport. It was a network of highways and roads with ramifications coming from areas of France, England, Italy, etc. The appearance of religious relics increased the number of monasteries and sanctuaries. This led to the creation of new routes for those pilgrims who were interested in accessing churches and contemplating the miracles of the Way of St. James.
