2 ARAGON ARAGON is in the north of Spain, form,ed by 3 provinces.
Zaragoza is the capital and the name of the main province. Teruel is in the South and Hues ca is in the North, just under the Pyrinees.

3 EAGLES AND VULTURES Eagle is the name given to the largest predatory birds. The various species and subspecies of eagles can be found almost anywhere on the planet except Antarctica .. Vultures are birds of prey that usually feed only on dead animals, although the absence of these, are capable of hunting live parts. The vultures are distributed over all continents except Antarctica and Oceania. There are lots near Loarre castle Ainhoa Montes

The valley of Benasque is a Pyrenean valley located in the region Ribagorza Huesca, in the upper stretch of the River Esera. There are a lot of villages that are part of the Benasque Valley, but the most popular is Cerler ski resort. In it, we find the highest peak of the Pyrenees, the Aneto, highlighting the peculiarity of 3404 meters of altitude.Most of the Pyrenean glaciers are in the Benasque Valley too. In the highest peaks there is always snow. There, we also find forests of beech, fir, and black pines and red oaks and pines in the lower part.There is also a reserve in the valley of mountain goats.

5 Añisclo Canyon Añisclo Canyon is in Huesca and it is the second biggest canyon, at least as deep as Ordesa, but t is narrower. It looks like a big crack on the uniform southern slope of Monte Perdido. Ondulating grass suddenly gives place to the abyss. Añisclo is surrounded by many interesting peaks to hike, in first place the wonderful sestrales, a mountain which seems to have come staight from Arizona. There are many pretty villages to see in the area. Andrea Franco

The richness of the Galve paleontological sites is long known both by experts and by the general public to these types of discoveries. Paleontological Park which consists of a showroom that houses fossils, numerous sites can be visited, as well as some traces or life-size reproductions of two dinosaurs that inhabited this land during the Cretaceous: Iguanodon and Aragosaurus Anais Portillo

7 Loarre Castle The complex was built largely during the 11th and 12th centuries, when its position on the frontier between Christian and Muslim lands gave it strategic importance. The first of the two major building programs began in 1020, when Sancho el Mayor ( ) reconquered the surrounding lands from the Muslims. At least three towers, two of which survive, the Homage tower and the "Tower of the Queen", as well as a chapel dedicated to Saint Mary of Valverde. Here. They shot the American film ‘The kingdom of Heaven’ Alvaro Lopez

8 ORDESA NATURAL PARK The morphology of the National Park has its origins in the folding and alpine elevation of the Tertiary Era. Subsequent molding by glacial erosion during the Quaternary Era gave rise to a series of glacial cirques and valleys. The National Park constitutes a geographic unit. Its orography is dominated by the calcareous massif — the biggest in Europe — of the Three Sisters whose greatest elevation is Monte Perdido. The most important valley is the Ordesa Valley. Other important features are the Añisclo Canyon, and the Pineta Valley, drained by the Cinca River. Carla Barcelona

9 AINSA VALLEY This beautiful valley is located in the Central Pyrenees, in the western part of Aragon, in the region of Sobrarbe. It is toured since its inception in Bujaruelo Valley to the town of Ainsa by the river that gives name to this valley and acts as an axis to the many people who settle on their shores. Oscar Rodríguez

10 OZA FOREST The Oza Forest, one of the most beautiful natural spots in the Pyrenees (not accessible by bus). The holm oak, native to the Mediterranean, as well as lime and maple trees have been replaced here by the continuous presence of beech and fir trees, as well as birch trees and scots pine. The narrowness of the valley prevents little sun from reaching the plants in its depths, and this coupled with thermal inversion means that we can enter Europe’s very own Atlantic forest. It ´s 60 kilometres from Zaragoza. DAVID ALGARA

11 PERACENSE CASTLE The strength of Peracense is hanging on a cliff of the mountain section Menera, in the municipality of Peracense, about 45 miles from Teruel. Peracense Castle perfectly fits with the landscape so that it seems part of it as if it were a geological phenomenon. The form taken is that of a ram of a ship stranded in the mountains of the main tower that stands out for its height and roundness. El recinto interior es la plaza de armas, de unos 60 x 40 metros, y en ella se puede observar una especie de nichos que debieron ser utilizados para almacenar víveres y para que los guerreros se resguardasen del frío. The surroundings are eroded formations in red colour similar to the canyon of Colorado. CARLA FERNÁNDEZ

Valdelinares is located in the Sierra de Gudar in the Spanish region of Aragon. It's one of Spain's smallest ski resorts. Facilities are limited and even beginners are likely to tire of the small number of slopes after a few days. But this is a gorgeous area of Spain, virtually untouched by international tourism, so you may want to spend some time exploring it and fit in a day or two of ski-ing at the same time. You'll find this tiny resort in the village of the same name, near the city of Teruel about 150 kilometres to the North West of Valencia and the Mediterranean coastline. There are just eight slopes.
