Wonderful Huesca, Spain by da-AL

Huesca Cathedral.

After a weekend in Barcelona, my husband and I rented a car. We headed for French Basque country.

Detail of Huesca Cathedral.

Along the way, we stopped for lunch in the lovely city of Huesca. Their beautiful cathedral is in the historic district. Built on the remains of a mosque, it took 300 years to complete in the early 16th century.

Nestled in nearby ancient buildings are two restaurants. One is authentic Korean! As much as we love our kimchi, we decided that instead it was a lovely day for a modest yet elegant meal of traditional Spanish food on a pretty outdoor patio.

Huesca according to Wikipedia… is a city in north-eastern Spain, within the autonomous community of Aragon. It is also the capital of the Spanish province of the same name and of the comarca of Hoya de Huesca. In 2009 it had a population of 52,059, almost a quarter of the total population of the province. The city is one of the smallest provincial capitals in Spain.

Wall art and graffiti abound e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e in Spain! Here in the U.S., graffiti is seldom as welcome.

Our vacation had started in beautiful Barcelona. From there we drove through wonderful Huesca, pretty Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, and enchanting Espelette. We were headed further into French Basque Country…

    • it was interesting to find that graffiti means something different in contries other than U.S. I’m with you, but that prob has a lot to do with our culture. It was all over Spain & no one seemed to take offense, even the stuff that looks like tagging. Finally I asked someone if it makes them scared & they said not at all, which got me to thinking about how our graffiti is different…
