The magic of cinema turned into reality in the oldest Romanesque fortification preserved in Spain. 

The castle of Loarre, built in the 11th century, is the oldest of its time preserved in Spain.

It was first a royal palace, later a monastery and, nowadays, a film set. The imposing wall that surrounds it and its eleven towers will welcome you.

In addition to the ensemble, discover its two churches, the Santa Quiteria crypt, the tower of homage and that of the queen and look at the sculptures of the capitals and the inscriptions on the walls.

Furthermore, from its position there is control over the entire plain of the Hoya de Huesca and, in particular, over Bolea, the main Muslim square in the area, which controlled the rich agricultural lands of the plain.
