First knowledge of the village dates from the Prehistoric era.
'Dévanos' comes from two latin words: "Deus" (Dei) and "Pan" (Panos).
The negative on the left dates from 1911-1917, taken by Juan Cabré Aguiló (1882-1947). It depicts the old castle, from which we can only see one of its walls since it was torn down to build houses.
Several prehistoric items such as stone engravings were found between 1925 and 1926.
The so-called "Devanense art" mostly consists of stone engravings on small rocks. Some were found in small caves or in small recesses in the hills.
The image has several examples of those.
In 1714, Isabel de Farnesio, went by Dévanos and was invited by the Counts of Villarrea to its Palace.
The Palace of Villarrea, an old building (unfortunately now almost in ruins and poorly maintained) sits at the entrance of the village.
In December of 1808, the Napoleon French troops occupied the village.
They camped in a field called "Las Eras" and destroyed Saint Sebastian's hermitage. They also burned down a sculpture of the Saint.
The oil painting "Batalla de Tudela" by January Suchodolski (1827) depicts accurately how the French troops invaded the region.
