Alquézar

Almost as though carved from the rock itself, Alquézar overlooks the Sierra y Cañones de Guara Natural Park and is one of Aragón’s most attractive old towns. A labyrinth of cobbled, winding streets and low archways coil around the town’s central square and many of the buildings’ facades bear coat-of-arms motifs dating back to the 16th century. The uniquely shaped town square, formed with no cohesive plan or architectural style, has a porched area that was built to provide shelter from the sun and rain.
