Ansó is a valley in the Aragonese Pyrenees, which borders France for over 50 kilometres on one side, and the Regional Community of Navarre for over 30 kilometres on the other. This makes it a frontier territory. Its strategic location meant that for centuries it enjoyed privileges granted by the different Aragonese kings, which forged the character and way of life of its people.

Its inhabitants principally work in tourism, services, mountain livestock and forest exploitation. All this means that the level of unemployment is minimal and young people can happily settle in the area.

Ansó offers the visitor extensive natural surroundings. To the north we find the Valles Occidentales Natural Park and to the south the Protected Landscape of the Foces de Fago y Biniés, where you can practise a wide range of mountain pursuits.

Architectural heritage: Ansó has one of the best preserved urban centres of the Aragonese Pyrenees, and was declared a Site of Cultural Interest by the Government of Aragon owing to its architecture based on noble materials such as the stone, wood and tiles typical of the territory.

Cultural Heritage: Ansó's traditional dress represents one of the richest and most varied in Spain. Some of the garments date back to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Ansó's feast of Exaltation (last Sunday of August) has been declared of National Tourist Interest. Its gastronomy is based around meats from the native breeds of the area, migas de pastor (shepherd's breadcrumbs), game and mushrooms, and is a main attraction for tourists in itself.

We have a network of information points and museums to help visitors discover more of our local identity.

We look forward to seeing you!
