Aragón

Pyrenean grandeur

Ordesa National Park

San Juan de la Peña 

Mudéjar architecture

Aragón is one of the least known regions of Spain, but rewarding to explore. Its sights are grouped to the north and south, with Zaragoza, the country’s fifth largest city, in the centre. The Pyrenees and their foothills hold most appeal, particularly the awesome canyons and cliffs of the Ordesa National Park. Also worth seeking out is the secluded monastery of San Juan de la Peña. The mountains are popular for walking, skiing and a range of other sports.

Teruel province in the south is known for its Mudéjar architecture, along with several historic towns, most notably Albarracín and Teruel.
