In the foothills of Moncayo Natural Park, one of the Cistercian jewels in Aragon is waiting for you: the monastery of Veruela. A few miles from Veruela one of the most spectacular, nice original old towns in Aragón stands proud: Tarazona. Make yourself home and visit the cathedral ‘Santa María de Huerta’. Old legends say that witches met together in Trasmoz. From the homage tower in the castle a magnificent paramount is devised.
