Alquezar & Zaragoza
Alquezar & Zaragoza
Alquezar – a place where time seems to standstill. Its village, declared a National Monument in 1931 and its urban centre, declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1982, give you the feeling of entering another century. Besides, Alquezar is well known for its wonderful walking route, which leads you through the spectacular canyon of the river Vero. So explore the prettiest village of Huesca and the beautiful nature of the Sierra de Guara in the Aragonese Pyrenees at once!
Zaragoza – Spain’s fifth-largest city and home of Francisco de Goya, one of the greatest Spanish painters of all time. It is a city rich in history, in which Christians, just like Romans, Jews and Muslims have left their mark. Visit the symbol of Zaragoza, the Basilica del Pilar, declared a Mudejar art World Heritage Site and actually Spain’s largest baroque temple and enjoy an amazing Kayak ride on the Ebro river – there is enough to do and see!
History has left its mark on this beautiful place. In the ninth century, Alquezar was originally founded by Sheikh Jalaf Ubn Rasid. But then, in 1083 it got conquered by the Christians – so when we stroll through Alquezar’s streets, we will find a mix of both religions and feel like we travelled back in the time.
