Route of Santiago through Aragón

The Aragonese part of the French Road lived its zenith in the Middle Ages, between 11th and 16th century.
Add to my travel

From Somport pass, at 1,640 m above sea level, starts this historic route crossing the Pyrenees and descending through Aragón river valley. You will be delighted by high mountains and amazing landscapes, in contrast to the plains throughout the last stages in Aragón.

French Road Heritage

Peace is breathed here, and the amazing scenery going along with you provide a special magic to this route.

Santa Cristina hospital construction, one of the most important three at that time, and the fact that Jaca became the capital of Aragón, made pilgrims to pick this route all over those years. Known as Toulouse road, more than 500 years of medieval pilgrimage left wonderful stories and legends, apart from an extraordinary rich cultural and artistic legacy. Jaca cathedral, Monastery of San Juan de la Peña and the Romanesque shrines Santa María de Iguácel and San Adrián de Sasabe, and the village Santa Cruz de la Serós are some of the most beautiful examples.
