Zaragoza

2000 years of history located by the biggest river of Spain. Born as a Roman colony, later an Arabic city and now the capital of the Kingdom of Aragón, this vibrant city is full of historical monuments and rich in traditions. It is the fifth biggest city in Spain and one of the few in the world with two cathedrals, the Basilica del Pilar and the La Seo, both landmarks of the city. Also known for its local gastronomy, a tapas tasting during the day is worth a try, whereas at night you will enjoy its crazy party life.

Jaca

First capital of the Old Kingdom of Aragón, this town located at the foot of the Pyrenees is now well-known for its picturesque historical centre and fortress. In winter, hundreds of people enjoy the ski-resorts nearby, whereas in summer, many hikers and mountain lovers discover the fetching mountains of the Pyrenees and especially Ordesa National Park.

Albarracín

Located in the province of Teruel, Albarracín is one of the most enchanting medieval villages. In the middle Ages, it became the capital of its own Muslim Kingdom with an extraordinary castle still standing from that old period. Besides that building, the surrounding walls, the magnificent wooden mansions and the passages and alleys will take you back to medieval times. All these small details transform the town into a monument itself that you cannot miss if you visit the North of Spain.
