  • When we headed down the road, without any information, we come across an unusual visual of a castle on top of a mountain, alone, with no city or town. We left the road and headed out to ruin. It was pretty easy to find the way, luckily it was early and there was almost no one along the way. I say this because the road leading to the castle is pretty torturous and cliffs on the side that creep. There's no room for two cars and it freaked me out but we got there. It was very cold and there was even ice on the climb to the entrance. Dangerous place and there's no security never would take children on site. Finally, part recuparada the crash showed all its robustness who went through centuries of history. Despite the fear of heights, it was great to have had contact with this piece of history I recommend the tour but with restrictions and great care.

  • From the national this castle is seen to rise up into the sky on a nearby mountain. After searching that Castle was, seeing as arrive and decide to visit him because we not delayed us too on our trip we undertake towards him. The road to arrive is in good condition although we had muuuucha luck not to cross us with cars or climb down because it is fairly close. Parking I recommend making it into the first parking lot which is located next to the first informational poster that you see as there is enough room and other parking that is above ground part has much more low and low of cars can scratch. It should reach the castle on foot along the road past a barrier. You can see the entire interior of the Castle ground and some towers inside, also also we can look at the inside of the castle through a few bars that exist in the innards of the building entrances. The restoration can be appreciated with concrete blocks and gobs of cement in areas which needed to be reinforced. Global is a place very cool that spend a good day and see how it was build during the middle ages. If something still missing you to quench your thirst for history I recommend cool down slightly on the road until you find a direction of wooden post in a small square of land. Fits the car if you don't want to walk. From there a few meters forward and down to the rocks of a small slope you can find a small bunker, or rather, nest of machine guns of the civil war. There is entry to view the inside. I hope that you pass it you big in both places!

  • Castle just 15 km from Huesca, generous views of the Hoya de Huesca and the city. Is located in the top of a mount round and high called monte Aragón that gave name to the castillo-abadia. It was conceived as a fortified architectural ensemble, consisting of Castle with military houses intramural and also housed inside a rich Church and Royal Monastery. Today it is half in ruins, although if we have time it is worth a visit for the afternoon and enjoy the views.

  • Nice and typical castle overlooking the area and standing out as a nice monument. Look on it from far, as you get closer the magic seems to go away and there are many similar sites along the way
  • Cute place. The ruins of the Castle. You can walk through the fields-an hour and a half, two from Centre of Huesca. Public transport there. Beautiful view

  • Although it is mostly in ruins, it has beautiful views and is a good place to observe the sunsets in Huesca

  • Lllegamos a day in early October, 2014, at dusk. Windy, cool. Long enough until it nightfall on the Castle monastery and Huesca in front just a few kilometres. Quick walk around the netorno amuralladoy inside her. ... Impression of abandonment, despite the reinforcement of walls, towers and windows which close is the castle of Loarre and Super conservation! On my visit I have edited an album on google +. Overnight stay in Quicena, publecito on the plain, but safe. The magnificent dawn: agur Montearagón, I ask about your when I picked up.

  • Beautiful ruins in the sierra de Montearagón castilllo-fortress Abbey, cradle of Kings of Aragon, a must-see if you're visiting Huesca.
