The passing of the centuries has left an important mark on many villages in Somontano. In the city of Barbastro and in the medieval villa of Alquézar, this legacy is so valuable that both have been recognised and declared as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

With their history and proud heritage they provide an excellent setting that should be seen first hand as the legends, stories and secrets they hide reveal their souls and their hearts. Either place would be a perfect starting point from which to get to know Somontano.
