Hotel Santa Maria de Alquezar
Travel Blogs from Alquezar
We headed out of Huesca tis morning with the aim of getting to Alquezar but we were a bit peeved as after we'd been cycling on the main road for about 4-5km's we passed a sign saying Huesca 1km. We'd gone out the north side of town and then headed east while if we'd just headed straight east then we'd have saved the 4km detour - still it was nice …

Our plan today was to walk a route that is actually designated a mountain bike route. The route has an interesting name and description (as seen in the photo). The route is classified as a black route and my goodness, how you do this on a bike, I will never know.

I went into the castle area and this lady decided to explain some of the history to me. I ...

Arrived in the rain, first place we saw and we took it to get our selves and our bikes out of the rain. By the time we'd got to our room the rain had stopped and we'd paradise outside our window with a view of the old castle ruins and Iglesia de Santa Maria la Mayor - beautiful. Might not be able to sleep tonight knowing that the view is right there outside the window. Real picture postcard stuff.
