Ultramarinos La Confianza

Reviewed By AWValencia - Gijon, Spain

lovely old fashioned shop filled with lots of interesting foods, herbs and spices etc. was quite difficult to browse as the person working there seemed impatient and wanted us to make a quick purchase. shame as they would probably sell more to tourists if they were friendlier and more helpful.

Monasterio San Pedro el Viejo

Reviewed By Nikolay07 - Moscow

The Abbey is now a museum, consisting of a main church, a cloister and minor chapels. We found the cloister mostly fascinating. Its beautiful Romanesque capitals are attributed to the same maestro, who worked at the Monasterio de San Juan de la Pena and iglesia de Santiago en Aguero. Some of the capitals are heavily restored, but most make a striking impression. One of the abbey's small chapels is a Royal Pantheon for two Aragon kings: Alfonso I and his brother Ramiro II.

It was raining so I did not feel like wanting to have a walk in the park, but it had interesting corners even though it is quite small. The snowwhite house is unexpected...

Colegiata de Bolea

Reviewed By colelin - Bilbao, Spain

Es una maravilla el retablo realizado por el anónimo "Maestro de Bolea" y efectivamente parece un retablo realizado en tablas flamencas de no se sabe que ignota procedencia. Hay que visitarlo si se tiene el suficiente aguante para subir hasta allá arriba.

Reviewed By AlbertSalichs - Manresa, Spain

Circulo Oscense is the building, in where is located the casino of Huesca. It is a modernist building and it is located in Navarra Square. Here there are a bar and an excellent restaurant with a Michelen Star: Lillas Pastia. The building is beautiful and the restaurant is excellent, probably one of the best in the town.

Museo de Huesca

Reviewed By AlbertSalichs - Manresa, Spain

Museu de Huesca is a museum located in the old town of the town, where you can see some expositions about history of the region, archaeology and paintings of Huesca painters. The museum is not very interesting, but I recommend you do the guided visit of the old town, where you can learn about the most important pieces of the museum.

Valle de Aguas Tuertas

Reviewed By chesus m - Zaragoza, Spain

Valle impresionante, tanto por su belleza como por su grandiosidad, ya solo para llegar, merece la pena pasar por "selva de Oza", bonito de verás en cualquier estación del año, muy accesible para todo tipo de gente, ya que se puede llegar directamente por la pista si no se quiere subir unos 400 metros finales por el empedrado.
