SPAIN - BIESCAS (BY THE PYRENEES) . SKIING IN WINTER &HIKING IN SUMMER. GOOD FOOD, TRADITION AND CULTURE

Las fotos del paisaje se corresponden con lo que se ve desde el apartamento. La casa está en Biescas, atractivo y tranquilo  pueblo, al mismo tiempo que dispone de todos los servicios. Está muy cercano a la ciudad de Jaca y de Sabiñánigo y cerca de las pistas de esquí de Formigal y Panticosa. Nos gustaria viajar a Inglaterra, París o Alemania en el verano de 2019. No es necesario que el intercambio sea simultáneo.

The main picture corresponds to what is seen from the apartment. The house is in Biescas, an attractive and quiet village which offers all kind of services and it is, at the same time, very close to other bigger towns and cities such as Huesca, Jaca and Sabiñánigo and close to the skiing stations of Formigal and Panticosa. It is, at the same time, a few miles from the French border and skiing resorts.
We would like to travel to England, Paris or Germany in the summer of 2019. It is not necessary the exchange to be simultaneous.

THE HOUSE

Our appartment is a very comfortable place to spend your holidays. There is a large living-room, beautifully decorated which is close to a kitchen and there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom.
The house overlooks the river and the views are really outstanging when sitting on the sofa by the living-room window.

THE TOWN: BIESCAS

The ecclesiastical heritage of Biescas is represented by the churches of San Pedro and Salvador, both romanesque and dominate the two hills on which the population sits.

The present church of San Pedro was lifted during the nineteenth century. After the Civil War and the widespread destruction, the intervention of the Devastated Regions National Service gave the church its present aspect.

On the other hand, the Church of San Salvador is a building built around the year 1200, renovated in the XVI century and rebuilt after the Civil War.

As Biescas is located very close to the French border and so close to the skiing stations of Candanchú, Formigal and Panticosa you can go skiing in winter and enjoy beautiful snowed ladscapes by the mountains.

In summer time You can also go hiking and practice mountain sports, having walks in the mountains or simply looking for mushrooms to make a good stew at home.

Just 5 km from the town center, taking the PR-HU 78 to the French border stands the chapel of Santa Elena, built in the seventeenth century at the entrance of the Tena Valley. This is a very beautiful spot sanctified from the Neolithic period, as evidenced by the dolmen standing in the meadow, at the foot of the chapel. Also in Roman times the place continued to be center of worship for the nymphs. The shrine is built next to an intermittent fountain

There are many and varied villages next to Biescas and so many places to visit just having a walk or on a morning excursion.
There are supermarkets, restaurants and even a swimming pool and a small sport centre where you can go and play different sports. There is also a tourism office downtown where you may be perfectly informed about the different activities taking place daily in the town or in the surroundings.
