When Pompaleo (Pamplona) was founded in the 2nd century B.C. the existence of Andelos was already documented. This Roman city, located at an important crossroads between present-day Jaca, Logroño and Pamplona, experienced its maximum splendor in the 1st and 2nd centuries AD.
The archaeological remains tell us that the city was articulated from two main streets: the cardo maximus in a north-south direction, and the decumanus maximus, in an east-west direction. Parallel streets were laid out in both directions, forming blocks that included several houses. There was a residential quarter, with large houses, well-paved streets, public buildings, and shops, and a craft quarter, with stores and even a laundry.
But the most notable discovery regarding the city of Andelos is its exceptional water supply system. A work that includes from the collection of water to the distribution center in the city, and of which some archaeological remains are preserved.
