Catedral de Santa María

Cathedral in Huesca

This Gothic cathedral is one of Aragón's great surprises. The richly carved main portal dates from 1300, the attached Museo Diocesano contains some extraordinary frescos and painted altarpieces, and the stately interior features a superb, 16th-century alabaster retablo (altarpiece) by Damián Forment showing scenes from Christ's crucifixion. To round off your visit, climb the 180 steps of the bell tower for 360-degree views all the way to the Pyrenees.
