Presentation of Aledo

The municipality of Aledo (986 inhabitants in 2014; 4,974 ha; municipal website) is located in the south-west of the Region of Murcia, 60 km of Murcia.

Aledo was first documented, as a Moorish fortress, in the 10th century. After the Christian reconquest, the town was granted by King Alfonso X the Wise - who is said to have written parts of the Partidas in the castle of Aledo - to the Master of the Order of St. James, Palay Pérez Correa.
Aledo was granted municipal rights on 25 July 1592, which is remembered by a pillory, the only one preserved until now in the Region of Murcia.
