A Romanesque jewel in Huesca city centre, with unique elements such as its cloister or its beautiful chrismon.

The Monastery of San Pedro el Viejo preserves the only Romanesque cloister in Aragon and is part of its history as a seat and royal pantheon.

The only way to learn about the teachings of the Bible in the Middle Ages was through sculpture, which is mainly reflected in the capitals. Next to the cloister, we also have the façade decorated with a beautiful chrismon, a common element of Aragonese Romanesque.

You can't leave without seeing the chapel of San Bartolomé, where the remains of Ramiro II the Monk and Alfonso I the Battler rest.
