Tierra del Moncayo: land of Christians, Muslims, Jews, Celtiberians and Romans. The legacy of history runs through the veins of this corner of the province leaving behind traces of the many cultures and civilisations that passed through here. The past has been the great architect in this rich mixture of buildings.

 

Mount Moncayo has always been a symbol of legends and fantasy: from the Celtiberians up to Bécquer, passing through Roman mythology, Christian miracles and folk stories that all come together in caves and wells.

 

Here you can see the highest and the lowest villages in the province; the highest mountain and the lowest plains, the rainiest areas and the driest as well. The geographical diversity is well present.

 

Ágreda has the most amount of historic-artistic landmarks, both Muslim and Christian. Its churches, palaces, synagogue, defensive walls and interweaving narrow streets take us back to the time when the Christian crowns of Castile, Aragon and Navarre battled against each other.

 

Ólvega offers a journey based on religious artwork that fed off of the different styles that have been provided by civilisations over centuries. There is a short PR path that will take you into the heart of the land. La Mina Petra, which once was dissected to extract its metal heart, is now being recovered the become a tourist attraction due to its overwhelming silence and bizarre beauty.

 

In Muro, a small village of Ólvega, you can find Roman remains. This village has won a local Touristic Municipality prize due to all the cultural activities that the locals organise throughout the year.

 

This is the land that inspired so many of Bécquer’s stories. The romantic poet passed by Noviercas, Vozmediano, the beautiful town of Beratón, Gómara, and Almenar and many other towns full of life and legend.

 

In Cueva de Ágreda, you can find the Mount Moncayo Interpretation Centre, and from this village, you can go on the long distance footpath GR-86 that takes you to the top of Mount Moncayo.
