ART & HISTORY

The Serrablo Route of Romanesque churches is a set of 14 churches all in similar style yet each with unique features and quite particular to this small area (20Kms away from our apartment). All of them are situated to the left bank of the Gállego river: Lárrede, Isún, Satué, San Juan de Busa, Oliván, San Bartolomé de Gavín among more. Chronologically they date back to between the mid 10th and mid 11th centuries.

It's worth including the Catheral in Jaca here too as it isn't that far from the Tena Yalley. It's a Romanesque building dating to the 11th century and whose diocesan museum houses a wide collection of Romanesque and Gothic paintings. A little farther from Jaca is the Romanesque monastery of San Juan de la Peña carved into the rock and declared a National Monument in 1889. It's also worth visiting Santa Cruz de la Serós a medieval village with an 11th C monastery and a church called San Caprasio which is an excellent example of Lombardy Architecture.

Also the Roman and Medieval bridges together with Romanesque arches are also some of the architectural features to be seen here.
