History

Sopeña has been an archeological source of a human shanty-town discovery from about 1550 BC. Iberians, Romans and Moslem civilizations later inhabited this shanty-town. After the Reconquest on Sopeña’s peak laid a castle-citadel pertaining to Aragon’s royalty; Martín I “the humane” and his wife and queen María de Luna. Subsequently the castle belonged to Segorbe’s nobles and ducks since XVI c.
Since the year 589 when Próculo Bishop attended to “Toledo’s III Council”, Segorbe has been Episcopal see. This gives an especial character to Segorbe’s history that can be looked up in the historic files that collect facts since XIII c.
