It’s a bittersweet reality about Aragon that many tourists overlook it completely, though it is just as lovely as other popular destinations in Spain. This location is home to colourful bullfights, running of the bulls and superb Mudéjar style of architecture, especially in the town of Teruel, and this style can also be found in Alentejo. Aragon has been the site of incredible historical events throughout the history of Spain; rent one of the comfortable self catering Aragon holiday apartments or other rental properties available for booking and learn all about it first-hand. If you have enough time, for example if you stay for a week or so, you should definitely discover some of the surrounding area too, as San Sebastian in the Basque Country, the second largest Spanish city of Barcelona in Catalonia and the Huesca province aren't far away.

Those who travel here and choose to book lettings such as a holiday apartment in Aragon or a holiday home, villa or cottage, will not be disappointed considering all that Aragon has to offer. From castles to valleys with waterfalls and medieval towns, easily accessible from Aragon holiday rentals, this unique region has it all. Choose a holiday house with a swimming pool for that extra bit of luxury, or if you want to go to the beach, travel across the border to Aquitaine in France, or to the Basque Country which is also close by.
Don't forget to travel to Zaragoza - An exciting city
Start out your tour of Aragon in Zaragoza, the city which is by far the most well known of the region. In this town, one of the prime architectural, religious and historical attractions is the Cathedral, also known as the Basilica del Pilar. Like many religious monuments in Spain, this cathedral tells the tale of prolific reinvention over the course of centuries that experienced the changing laws and beliefs of the land. Especially spectacular at night, stand on the banks of the river Ebro for a perfect photo opportunity and to admire the view of the flowing river with the relfection of the lit-up bridge twinkling on the clear water's surface and the towers of the basilica as a backdrop. The two lesser-known cities of Aragon are Teruel and Huesca, and they remain virtually undiscovered. Because these cities are less frequented by tourists than Zaragoza, travellers will find a local populace that is extremely kind and friendly and will be sure to make you feel welcome if stay in a rental property here.
