Presentation of Haza

The municipality of Haza (33 inhabitants in 2009; 8,345 ha; unofficial website) is located 100 km of Burgos.

Haza, also known as Aza in the Middle Ages, was one of the first places resettled in the 10th century after the reconquest of the region from the Moors. The resettling of Haza was started in 912 by Count Gonzalo Fernández, on behalf of King of León García I. The hill on which the village was built watched the valleys of rivers Riaza and Duero, while the Riaza supplied the colonists with freshwater. Haza was granted the title of villa and made the capital of the Community of the Village and Land of Haza.
Dame Juana de Aza (1135-1205, blessed in 1828) was the mother of St. Dominic de Guzmán, the founder of the Dominican Order.
