Huesca

Capital of Aragón until the royal court moved to Zaragoza in 1118, Huesca was founded by the Romans more than a thousand years earlier; the city became an independent state with a senate and an excellent school system organized by the Roman general Sertorius in 77 BC. Much later, after centuries of Moorish rule, Pedro I of Aragón liberated Huesca in 1096. The town's university was founded in 1354 and now specializes in Aragonese studies.
