What to see The history of Huesca stretches back over 2.000 years. In the old city centre, you will find the cathedral, the church and cloisters of San Pedro el Viejo, the City Hall and the former Royal Palace of Aragon (now the Provincial Museum). According to legend, the latter was the venue for an event known as La Campana de Huesca, when 12 noblemen were beheaded. We also recommend visiting the Museum of Art and Nature (CDAN), designed by Rafael Moneo. And to round off your walk around the old city centre, what better than Miguel Servet Park, home to the city's most iconic sculpture: “Las Pajaritas”. Enquire about the city's sightseeing bus, guided tours and “Carné del Turista” (Tourist Pass). Trips. Active tourism Huesca is a gateway to the sub-desert landscapes of Los Monegros (to the south) and the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park (to the north). In the winter, it is a gateway to such ski resorts as Candanchú and Formigal. Gastronomy Roast “Ternasco” lamb is one of the most popular dishes, Other typical dishes include “migas a la pastora” (delicious fried breadcrumbs), “salmorejo” (a cold tomato-based soup), “pollo al chilindrón” (chicken with tomatoes and peppers) and a cod dish called “bacalao ajoarriero”. And for those with a sweet tooth, there is even a “Sweet Route”.
