Little gem in the Pyrenees

Little gem in the Pyrenees. Peace within adventure. Worth visiting. Easy to walk around town. No need for 100 characters here. Just go and find out by yourself.

A quality museum and tours arranged. All free. You just have to pluck up courage and go in as there are no signs outside

We tiptoed around this beautiful 12th century cathedral one evening. The art work and architecture are amazing. One treasure after another. We didn't have time for the museum, but I'm sure it would have been very interesting.

This Romanesque Cathedral (1040-76), though altered over the centuries and given Plateresque decoration is one of the main attractions of Jaca. Combined with the attached museum, it must be on your list to visit.

The church gives a very nice authenitc look. It's not very touristic inside. The cathedral houses a exhibition about religious wall paintings, whom where found around Jacà since 1960. They were prelevated and are now - along other gorgious paintings and old statues - on view for public. A students pays €4.5 and i made the tour in two hours.... More

The darckness of the templum does not make unworthy the quiet visit of this Romanesque jewel. A robust facade harbors a wide nave. Lateral chapels contains old altarpieces and a chapel of the Blessed Sacrament. Guided visits can be booked. The visit of the diocesan Romanesque museum (not free) may be interesting. A must visit for the pingaríamos of French-Aragonese... More

A must-see romanic cathedral; one of the oldest in Spain. Visit the attached museum ! It is well maintained and preserved. Put coins to get light enough to watch around.

One of the best examples of early romanesque art in Spain and indeed Europe. It keeps most of its original structureThe quietness during the hours with no service, only rivals with the powerful organ music during the masses. Whether you are an art fanatic, a religious person or just someone that enoys beauty, this is certainly a place to visit,... More
