Castles, medieval bridges, tiny Romanesque shrines, monasteries and an overwhelming nature are some of the incentives offered to the visitor around Roda de Isábena.
Very close, in Capella, the medieval bridge stands proud, with its great arcades along with the 12th century Romanesque shrine, whose massive painted altarpiece dates back from the 16th century.
Another highly recommendable place is Graus, the largest town in the area. Its location, where rivers Isábena and Ésera meet, in a crossroads between Aragón and Cataluña, has allowed it top lay a key role in the history of Ribagorza county. Although it was an important Muslim position, there are hardly any remains of those times, but the old town is to be admired, like some of the town gates still preserved.
But the real jewel is the arcade market square, with three different arcades: the one of the Town Hall, in Aragonese Renaissance style (16th century), the Manor house ‘Pentineta’ with 18th century paintings and Manor House ‘Bardaxí’ in a Neoclassical style.
Also in Graus, the shrine of ‘Virgen de la Peña’ is erected on the rock ‘peña del Morral’.
