Birthplace of filmmaker Luis Buñuel, Aragon is a surrealist blend of stark natural beauty and historic importance. With Catalonia to the east, and Valencia to the south, Aragon remains wild and relatively unchanged from its time as a seat of power for Spanish royalty.

It is also a pallet of extreme colour and contrast. Walk through green valleys into the snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees, meander through meadows or dive into spectacular waterfalls. If you still need more magic, walk through Romanesque cathedrals, medieval towns, or magnificent castles, and sample a foodie culture that fuses wild hunts with foraged treasures.
