Fodor's Review

The area's most important monument, the 9th-century retreat Monasterio de San Pedro de Siresa, presides over the village of Siresa, just 2 km (1 mile) north of Hecho. Although now only the 11th-century church remains, it is a marvelous example of Romanesque architecture. Cheso, a medieval Aragonese dialect descended from the Latin spoken by the Siresa monks, is thought to be the closest to Latin of all Romance languages and dialects. It has been kept alive in the Hecho Valley, especially in the works of the poet Veremundo Méndez Coarasa.
