Sleeping on a site between Ariza and Cetina

Cetina, province of Saragossa / ALC.

According to El Cantar de Mío Cid, El Cid and his men spent the fifteenth night of exile in a site situated somewhere between Ariza and Cetina. The presence of El Cid and his army caused a fear response among the people of both villages, who gave El Cid several tributes. It is unclear what site was the poet of El Cantar referring to. Be that as it may, it is clear that the anonymous author of the poem knew the area very well and had a specific place in mind. We have symbolically placed the site on the middle of the route, next to Barranco del Moro.
