This village belongs to the region of Somontano de Barbastro, a land that grows wines with a world-famous Designation of Origin. The prolific agricultural and industrial activity in this region allows the organisation of prestigious fairs and trade shows.
Barbastro constitutes the natural gate into most of Sierra de Guara. In the town centre we find the cathedral (16th century), declared a Historic-Artistic Heritage, which is surrounded by the Archaeological Garden, with valuable artefacts from the 12th-18th centuries. The Diocesan Museum, the Episcopal Palace, the house of Argensola, the City Hall, the church and fountain of San Francisco, the Baselga house (16th century), and the San Julián compound all hold artistic treasures that themselves narrate the history of Barbastro.
