It was the capital of the county of Ribagorça and site of a diocese, the reason why the Romanesque Cathedral of Roda was built between the 11th and 12th century. Located near the Isàvena river, the county of Ribagorza was one of the founding domains from which was built the Kingdom of Aragon. The village of Roda rises over a mountain which dominates the access to the valley of Isàvena. During the tenth century it was a fortified village which served as a vigilance point between the Muslim Taifa of Saragossa and the Christian county of Ribagorça, which would ultimately become part of the Kingdom of Aragon.
