Alquezar

With its storybook charm, Alquezar is an authentic town perched on a mountain, boasting a fascinating history.

Alquezar is a municipality in the province of Huesca, in the autonomous community of Aragon, Spain. Situated on a limestone outcrop of Eocene age to the west of the canyon of the Rio Vero river in the Sierra de Guara national park, the village has grown around a castle and the Colegiata de Alquezar of Santa Maria (consecrated in 1099). The surrounding area to the south towards Barbastro, in the direction of the flatter Ebro basin, is part of the Somontano, an area known for its fine wines. There are more than 60 limestone caves with prehistoric cave paintings in the surrounding area, which has led to the region being declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1998.
