JACA AND LOARRE

The Loarre castle is considered the best-preserved Romanesque fortress in Europe.

Highlights include the small chapel, the crypt of St. Quiteria, located at the entrance (with incredible acoustics), and the majestic church of the castle (of which the whereabouts of the Romanesque paintings are unknown) in which the dome is striking (so unusual in the Romanesque).
