Walk around the village of Alquézar

Paseos por la villa de AlquezarThe hotel Santa María de Alquézar is located in the Medieval Village of Alquézar, the most unique place in the Comarca of Somontano and one of the most wonderful places in Spain.

The Arab place name "Alquézar" (al-Qasr) means fortress, and allude to the military origin of the place. It is a village that comes up on the castle shadow, on the mountain slope. It keeps an Arab and Jewish urban structure from Middle Age.

Do not forget to visit the Collegiate of Santa María de la Mayor, the Castle, the Old Square, San Miguel church, the hermitage of Las Nieves, the precipice of La Fuente and the cliffs of Río Vero, the Romanic bridges of Villacantal and Fuentebaños.

During this walk the visitor will discover numerous "high ways" that provide Alquézar with a defensive character and that were use to cross the village without passing the streets.

Customer reviews

Charming hotel with comfortable modern rooms, good prices and very friendly, professional service. The Medieval town of Alquezar is simply a must-see. And the nature surrounding the area is amazing: turquoise river with white beaches, the crystal water winding down dramatic canyons, green lush vegetation, a nature reserve for all kinds of large birds (vultures, eagles...) which are perfectly visible. Take a long hike along the "Pasarelas" (special hanging tracks over the river Vero) or practice more daring "canyoning" going in and out of the water in one of the many rivers in the area. The location is a wonderful valley just below the Pyrenees. Close by is the wine growing area of Somontano so you can also do wine tasting activities. A place not to be missed!
