When Pompaleo (Pamplona) was founded in the 2nd century BC. The existence of Andelos was already documented. This Roman city, located at an important crossroads, between the current Jaca, Logroño and Pamplona, lived 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 drawn in both directions, forming blocks that included several houses.
There was a residential neighborhood, with large houses, well-paved streets, public buildings and shops, and an artisan neighborhood, with warehouses and even a laundry.
