Valle de Hecho, nature, history and a point of mystery

The valley of Hecho, in the Pyrenees of Huesca, is one of those corners of this natural enclave that may not be on the first list of places to visit, but that then does not disappoint. On the contrary, the visitor repeats. The penultimate Aragonese valley -the last one is the neighboring Ansó valley-, before reaching Navarre, presents a rich history and a varied nature with a point of symbolism that adds an aura of mystery.

Journey to the center of the Earth: the Crystal caves in Teruel

Not much is said about the subterranean landscapes. We seem to settle for exploring the surface. In principle that is our natural habitat. It is where we feel comfortable. We have been able to cross oceans and discover new territories thousands of kilometers away, and even get on a rocket and shoot off into space to step on the moon, and yet we have a hard time going underground.

The gothic murals of Alcañiz, a medieval comic

Richly draped mounted soldiers on horseback heading for a castle; military camps; trees of science; minstrels; infantry marching orderly; King Jaime I entering Valencia… the Gothic murals that decorate several of the arches and rooms of the Alcañiz fortress were painted in the 14th century and recall the most memorable events of the founding of the city and the historical vicissitudes from 1157 , when Ramon Berenguer IV granted him the Royal Charter. And those of twenty-five years later, when King Alfonso the Chaste handed over the castle to the Order of Calatrava. Read more

The province of Teruel, a preferred destination full of contrasts

The province of Teruel, largely unknown to many, has the vocation of a preferential and inimitable destination, due to its natural spaces, its unusual places, its culture, its heritage and its gastronomy. Tourist overcrowding is alien to this territory full of antonyms, contrasts, with an area of ​​more than 14,800 square kilometers, a dozen regions and 134,500 inhabitants. Read more

The Aragonese Pyrenees route passes through the mysterious Canfranc station

Alfonso XIII inaugurated the Canfranc international railway station in 1928, a spectacular building located between two imposing vertical mountains, a few kilometers from the border with France and in the heart of the Aragonese Pyrenees. The station, throughout the 20th century, has a history full of great and important events as a consequence of the two wars in Spain and Europe, and the subsequent dictatorship. In 1970, the tunnel that crosses to France was definitively closed and the station was no longer international. Read more

I’m not the first, of course, the Arthurian knight Perceval did it before; the composer Richard Wagner; the Nazi hierarch Heinrich Himmler; archaeologist Henry Walton Jones Jr., better known as Indiana Jones; the researcher Robert Langdon, protagonist of The Da Vinci Code … Luckily, I play with an advantage: they have given me a blow, they assure me that the chalice remained more than three centuries in the monastery of San Juan de la Peña (Huesca) . There I head along the N-240 road, until, between Jaca and Yesa, I turn off onto the A-1603. Let’s see what I find out. Read more
