ⓘ San Millan de la Cogolla

San Millan de la Cogolla is a sparsely populated municipality in La Rioja. The village is famous for its twin monasteries, Yuso and Suso, which were declared a World Heritage Site in 1997. There were 293 inhabitants registered in 2009, the population having fallen significantly during the twentieth century.

San Millan has the right to be considered the birthplace of the Spanish language. The area is Spanish-speaking but some local place-names are of Basque origin, and there is evidence that Basque was spoken locally a thousand years ago Glosas Emilianenses.

Jews lived here in Najera, and they suffered greatly during the Civil war between Peter of Castile and Henry II of Castile. October 15, 1369, at the request of the Directors of the small aljama of San millán, advocated that "certain Jews who were received at court," Henry II of Castile ordered that "the Christian men and women and the Moorish men and women" should immediately implement all their debts to the Jews, "that they could pay taxes more quickly." September 10, 1371, however, the king released the Abbot and all the monks of San Millán from the fact that the debts they had contracted with the Jews since the battle of Najera.
