This route runs through the heart of the regions of Las Cinco Villas and La Hoya de Huesca. The mountains of Biel, Luesia, Luna and Santo Domingo are the pre-Pyrenean foothills that extend between the provinces of Huesca and Zaragoza, framing the beautiful villages full of art and history. It is a land of borders between Christians and Muslims, and, later, between Christian kingdoms.
Typical corners, churches, castles, medieval routes or popular architecture, here Romanesque features shine in all their splendour, like in places such as Sos del Rey Católico and Uncastillo. Beautiful and unsuspected spots, cereal plains, mountains, valleys, rivers and forests in surroundings that are dominated by the force of nature. And the Santuario de Monlora, raised upon the plain of a hill, it becomes the perfect balcony to look out over these lands. No place escapes the variety of colours and shades that are so typical of a diverse landscape that changes with each season.
