The link between Nobel Prize Ramón y Cajal with his home town, particularly remarked by the scientist in his memories, are shown in the Route Cajal, across three of the locations where he spent his early years: Ayerbe, Valpalmas and Linás de Marcuello.
In Valpalmas, a Centre for interpretation on Cajal is completed with a singular natural scenery, ‘Aguarales de Valdemilaz’. Ayerbe offers a second center, in the same house where the scientist welled, and a monumental old town.
Linás de Marcuello, with steep rocky hills, devotes a third center to towns in villages. Huesca Provincial Archive hosts massive files about his legacy.
