Iglesia de San Pedro El Viejo

Top choice church in Huesca

The church of San Pedro is one of the oldest and most important Romanesque structures in Spain, dating from the early 12th century. It's particularly notable for its hexagonal tower, its open cloister adorned with 38 beautifully carved Romanesque capitals (in some cases 19th-century copies), and the mausoleum containing the tombs of two Aragonese kings (and brothers), Alfonso 1 (r 1104–34) and Ramiro II (r 1134–37).
