Things to do in Huesca
The Romanesque towers and 11th-century monastery at Loarre Castle are just 22 miles from town. The fortress juts out from a rocky precipice, giving visitors spectacular views of the Pyrenees.
At Spain's oldest dry-goods store, Ultramarinos La Confianza, freshly baked bread shares shelf space with regional delicacies such as Somontano wine, pañoleta cheeses, and candied chestnuts.
You can't visit the town without admiring the flying buttresses of La Catedral de Huesca, a Gothic church built on the ruins of a mosque.
