Getting to Agüero is a delicious pleasure, particularly along the winding road guaranteed to surpise new visitors: after several curves leading to the village, the last curve reveals the awe-inspiring profile of Agüero in the distance.
Its mallos, imposing stone monoliths, provide a postcard-perfect backdrop, framing the village against the sky.
The houses are laid out in terraces 696 meters above sea level, creating a Medieval-style layout with the Romanesque Parish Church of San Salvador, with its stunning multiarched doorway, in the center; a memorable history that can be traced back in the coats of arms that decorate the doors in the village.
The village's rock formations feature the iconic Peña Sola, a monolith created when a large rock split, its western side reaching 200 meters into the air, making it and the surrounding rock formations perfect for climbing. Agüero also offers a range of additional adventure sports, not to mention outstanding ornithological tourism, as the surrounding area is home to scavenging birds and birds of prey.
And speaking of the surrounding area...the Church of Santiago, located a few kilometers from the village on a hill, deserves special mention. One of Huesca's Romanesque gems, the work of a great master, Master Agüero, whose work can be traced through other monuments in the area, including the cloister of San Pedro el Viejo in Huesca and San Juan de la Peña.
Its approximately 173 inhabitants celebrate festivals and events year-round: on January 20th in honor of St. Sebastian, the “d’as Mascaretas” festival (traditional Carnival) in February in honor of St. Blaise, and its annual festival to celebrate St. Roch on August 16th.
