Cuarte can trace the origins of its name back to Roman times and the Latin quartium, the word from which this popular Aragonese place name derives. It is a reference to the Roman mille passum that marked the distances between villages.


Cuarte is home to a number of interesting buildings, including the Baroque-style Parish Church of La Natividad and the 1777 coat of arms of the Benedet family.

Nearby, the chapel and Alberca de Loreto are a can’t-miss cultural and natural landmark in Hoya de Huesca.

The village is also home to the Walqa Technology Park, as well as the Higher Polytechnic School of Huesca, and Espacio 0.42 (Planetarium and Astronomical Center of Aragón).
