    Things to do

    -Local heritage. Jaca boasts considerable historical interest, with exquisite churches, monasteries and defensive structures. The citadel is remarkable, as it has retained its original layout – the moat, bastions, barracks, magazine and gate have been perfectly preserved since the citadel’s construction in the late-16th Century. The Cathedral of Saint Peter is from the 11th Century and held as one of Spain’s outstanding Romanesque buildings, with a truly spectacular altarpiece.

    -Winter sport. Jaca is less than half an hour south of Cananchú, one of Spain’s first ski areas. There are 51 kilometres of marked pistes here, as well as a 35-kilometre cross-country course. The conditions are especially good for snowboarding, and, given the steepness of some of the slopes, it’s a resort that will appeal most to intermediate and expert skiers. The resort offers six restaurants and five shops where you can hire gear.

    -Summer adventure. When things heat up the landscape is perfect for action of a different kind – local specialists and guides are on hand to help you try a variety of intrepid sports, including rafting, kayaking, canoeing, bungee jumping, canyoning, climbing and Nordic walking. These sports are a fabulous way to immerse yourself in the unspoiled natural beauty of the area – known for its waterfalls and majestic hills.

    -Excursions. A great choice of interesting places are within a reasonable drive. To the south is Huesca, capital of the province and featuring a wealth of medieval history, including an impressive Gothic cathedral. There’s beautiful nature all around – north is the awe-inspiring beauty of the Pyrenees, best enjoyed from specially designated lookouts. To the west is Pamplona with its inspiring Baroque and Renaissance architecture.

    -Food and drink. One of many rewarding experiences here is trying the fantastic local cuisine. Here, as in much of rural Spain, menus change throughout the year, depending what’s in season. A perennial favourite is Pyrenean trout, which is usually grilled over wood here. Jaca is perhaps best known for its pastries and desserts – unique here are Jaqueses; an almond pastry with a honey cream filling.

    Weather in Jaca

    Jaca holiday apartments are at the foothills of the Pyrenees, in a location that has a continental climate with mountain influences. For the rest of us, this entails cool winters, with temperatures that slide below freezing at night in mid-winter and reach about five degrees by day. Mountainous areas a little way north get a consistent blanket of snow in this season. Beginning in May and lasting to late-September, summers here are warm, with highs in the upper-20s and lots of sunshine.
