Landmarks · Sacred & Religious Sites · Monuments
The heart of what was once a sprawling medieval kingdom, Aragón is relatively sparsely populated despite its large size. The region’s main attraction is the diverse terrain, from glaciers and arid steppe plains to rich pastures and thriving orchards. Home to numerous rivers, Aragón notably features the Ebro, the country’s largest river by volume, running west-east across the entire region and offering some of the best locations for a canyoneering holiday in Europe. The area is famous for offering some of the country’s finest wines and gourmet dishes peculiar to this part of the world, including various crab pastes and steamed fish delicacies.
