Beschrijving

  This Protected Landscape, in the province of Huesca, stands out because of its combination of nature and culture - typical Pyrenean mid-mountain landscape and one of the most important monasteries built in the High Middle Ages and first royal pantheon of Aragon: San Juan de la Peña Monastery.

  Because of the diverse environments here, it is a strategic place for fauna. One of the most characteristic landscapes is reddish rock faces surrounded by leafy forests. In spring, when the echinospartum flowers, the landscape in the mountains is covered in yellow, contrasting with the green forests. Surrounded by the vast forest we can find the Old Monastery of San Juan de la Peña, next to the rock face of the Pano Mountain in San Juan de la Peña.
