Art and culture
From the Pyrenees down to the mountain ranges in southern Teruel, one can walk along majestic castles, incense-scent abbeys, palaces with one thousand stories, cathedrals, towers, churches and small hermitages in places where sky can nearly be touched. We invite you to discover the art of Aragón along a way full of surprises.
When History becomes Art
In Aragón a unique art style is to be found: the mudéjar, an uneven print left by Muslim craftsmen in Christian buildings during the Middle Age. Declared World Heritage by Unesco, this style symbolizes tolerance among cultures. Join an unforgettable adventure to sensations where the stone becomes art in the Romanesque. Let us also invite you to come along the origins of Goya, the most universal Aragonese artist, and his work in his country.
Muslim and Christian castles, templar and ‘Calatravian’, some of them palace-like while others are astonishing fortresses. Cold stone, old secrets and legends, history, art, landscape… Aragonese monasteries have been waiting for your visit for centuries. Cathedrals, abbeys and shrines joining inside art and religion, are visited by thousands of tourists every year.
