Meet the ancient history of the province of Huesca traveling through different cultural manifestations.

Batan Lacort


The Batan is a hydraulic machinery. Water entering a ditch and a Ferris wheel moves two large wooden mallets alternatively hits wool pieces that were performed on traditional looms so they were softer, thin and thick.
With the installation in the mill Batan de Lacort in Fiscal, the City of the Fsical has managed to recover one of the most original ethnographic pieces of traditional culture, because right now it is the only restored and running in Aragón and one of the few remaining in the country.

Monastery San Juan de la Peña


The monastery of San Juan de la Peña is a religious complex in the town of Santa Cruz de la Serós, at the south-west of Jaca, in the province of Huesca, Spain. It was one of the most important monasteries in Aragon in the Middle Ages. Its two-level church is partially carved in the stone of the great cliff that overhangs the foundation. San Juan de la Peña means “Saint John of the Cliff”.
The lower church includes some mozarabic architectural surviving elements, although most of the parts of the monastery (including the impressive cloister, under the great rock) are Romanesque.

Loarre Castle


Loarre Castle is a fortress in Loarre, Spain. 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 ca. 1020, when Sancho el Mayor (r. 1063–94) reconquered the surrounding lands from the Muslims. At least three towers, two of which survive, the keep (Torre del Homenaje) and the “Tower of the Queen” (Torre de la Reina), as well as a chapel dedicated to Saint Mary of Valverde and connecting walls are attributed to this campaign.
