The Arguedas caves, they were built at the end of the XIXth century. These caves were perforated in the mount, to give place to housings where they were living through the arguedanos with less economic resources.
It was a difficult epoch, in which it was decided in favor of this type of construction, not to live under the power of few ones that had in property most of the houses, which were hired to the inhabitants of the locality. Another of the reasons for which this type of construction happened, was for the relative facility to excavate the area, and to be extending the housings the same way as the needs for the families were increasing.
In 1940 52 housings were taken into account in Arguedas in caves; these were left in the 60s due to the construction of social housing in the locality. The majority they have been closed.
Normally the structure of the housing was preparing along the front to make use of the natural light, there was no corridor and it was passing from one dependency on other one straight. Many of the houses were provided with granary and corral, since the majority they belonged to farmers who needed space to leave his work useful tools.
1000 Years of Communism
Derivative of the Jurisdiction of Arguedas, granted in 1092 by Sancho Ramírez, the agricultural use on behalf of the Copse of Arguedas, would organize the half for use in inheritable property, and another half for community use.
This disposition that has almost a millennium, it is still, with the opportune nuances, current at present, and part of the Copse is of municipal property, which properly parcelled up, it grants in usufruct to the arguedanos that properly registered request it for agricultural activity.
This Jurisdiction of Arguedas, special in his regulations, came to go forward 800 years to political expositions near to the communism.
The Small Balcony of the Moors
The "Arguedanos and Arguedanas" call Small Balcony of the Moors, to a natural balcony that exists in the crag on the Church of San Esteban.
One gains access behind the hamlet, rising for the Street "La Concha", and after a raised footpath good marked in the soil, goes over at the height of the crag, and along with the steep rock is the Small Balcony. The best Arguedas conference are observed from there, with the impressive tower of the Church at the head, the field in the distance, and in the horizon the Moncayo. Behind there stays the mount that ends in the Yugo.
The name of Small Balcony of the Moors comes of course from the place until 1084 of what was the citadel (castle) I reside.

There exist two clearly differentiated areas, the Half note and the Black woman. The first, named like that for the whitish colour of the soil due to the launderings of salt (saltpeter), it spreads from the terms of Pisquerra and of the Preserve of Eguaras up to Carcastillo. It is characterized by big flatness and deep ravines with peaks or hills of unforeseeable forms that the erosion carves every day. On the south, the Black woman is placed, with more vegetation, with relief’s you will tabulate almost horizontal and crossed by the Ravine of Tudela.

Biological research station of Arguedas
The Biological research station of Arguedas is located within a period of the Level one surrounded with big extensions of rice fields.
This place has not been determined at random, since the rice fields have created an ecosystem that contributes an important biodiversity to the area. The rice fields offer shelter and sustenance to a big number of birds, so much migratory as others who live here during the whole year.
At the Biological research station different activities develop, all of them focused on the environmental education. From the observatory there can be observed the varied species of birds that they inhabit or make use of the rice fields. The observatory has at the disposal of the visitors optical material and advice on the part of specializing monitors.
