Vidangoz, located between the Sierras of San Miguel and Arrigorrieta, sits on the banks of the Gully of Biniés. Like all the other villages in the valley, Vidangoz has always based its economy on livestock farming and the timber trade. The stelae, the cemetery and the “descent of the witch” are all significant parts of this village’s heritage. The “descent of the witch” takes place on the last weekend of August, when “Maruxa” the witch comes down from the Crag of Pitxorronga (at the entrance to the village) at midnight to mark the start of a witches’ Sabbath and the village festival. The Gorge of Biniés is in the municipal district of Vidangoz.

 

Church of San Pedro
The building still possesses Mediaeval elements from around 1200, such as the pointed-arch doorway and the tower, although it underwent significant renovation work in the 16th century. Both the starred roof and the polygonal chancel are from this later date. The successive reconstruction work performed on the church is evident from the outside, the tower now out of position with regard the nave. Inside, the building houses a set of Baroque reredos, whose interest lies in the manner in which they show the development of the style rather than any artistic merit.

Chapel of San Sebastián or La Asunción
This late-12th-century Romanesque chapel, which may have been a parish church for a district of the village of Vidángoz, stands not far from the village itself. The ground plan consists of a rectangular nave in two sections and a deep, semicircular chancel. Sunlight enters the chapel through two flared, semicircular windows. The semicircular-arch doorway has a Trinitarian chrismon on the tympanum. The wall opposite the chancel is finished off with a bell gable with a semicircular opening for the bell. The chapel houses a Mediaeval altar, a trapezoidal font decorated with a rosette and two, popular-style, carved Baroque statues, one of Our Lady of the Assumption and the other of Saint Sebastian.

Chapel of San Miguel
A hard-to-date, rural-style building set in amongst a group of buildings in a rocky area. The chapel has a simple rectangular ground plan with a single nave and square chancel. The 17th-century wooden choir with balustrade stands at the opposite end to the chancel. A civil construction is annexed to the same end of the chapel, thereby concealing the gable end.

Village Hall
Built at the end of the 19th century in Calle Mayor, the hall has three floors and reflects local architectural principles.
