Like all Paradors this one has great service, beautiful facilities, great views, and a lot of history. King ferdinand of Aragon was born here. It is said that the queen his mather was in Sangüesa , Navarra, when she went into labor and hurried back to Aragon so the prince would be born in Aragon, she almost didn´t make as Sos is just over the border.
This is a place to enjoy life,and relax.
