Benasque

Benasque, Aragón's easternmost town, has always been an important link between Catalonia and Aragón. This elegant mountain hub with a population of just over 2,200 harbors a number of notable buildings, including the 13th-century Romanesque church of Santa Maria Mayor and the ancient, dignified manor houses of the town's old families, such as the palace of the counts of Ribagorça, on Calle Mayor, and the Torre Juste. Take a walk around and peer into the entryways and patios of these palatial facades, left open just for this purpose.
