What's Jaca Like?
Jaca, in the foothills of the Pyrenees, was the base for Spain's Reconquista, the launch pad for centuries of campaigning to recapture the country from the Moors. It has vestiges of its past life as a military town, notably the 16th-century star-shaped fortress the Ciudadela, but Jaca has aged into a delightful and relaxed provincial gem with an atmospheric medieval center packed with tapas bars. Highlights include the cathedral, one of the most distinctive in Spain, built in the 11th century and one of the first Romanesque church in the country. The museum in the cathedral offers an original and interesting collection of wooden sculptures and frescoes from the villages of the high Pyrenees. The pilgrim trail passes near Jaca, crossing the 15th-century bridge of San Miguel just outside the city, in a particularly tranquil, scenic and timeless part of the Aragon countryside. Jaca hotels allow a relaxed stay in this unspoiled corner of northern Spain.
