Casa Sanz

Colungo (Huesca) España

Colungo General Information:

Located close to Vero river, Colungo is a magnificent place to start excursions and guided tours around the region and daily-trips to the precipice of Las Palomeras and Las Gargantas. The old-center of Colungo looks like a labyrinth and it keeps well-conservated some typical houses from the XVIth and XVIIth century; eg: Casa Notario, Casa Broto o Casa Avellanas. The church of the village, dedicated to Our Lady of the Pillar, was erected in the XVIth century, in a late gothic style. Outside, some marks in the facade will remember us that Joan Torón built it with his best workers. Traditionally, “old” wine was used as a base in the distillation of aguardiente. Nowadays, it’s a famous place for its hand-made coffee, tea and wildberries spirits, as well as for its orujo and anis.
Once in Colungo you could also learn about the amazing world of prehistory by visiting the Interpreation Center for the Cave Art. And last but not least, you should not leave the village without visiting the millennial olive of “Demba de Nadal”, planted by theMuslims -as some villagers say. Yearly, its owner gets an excellent harvest. Even its size it’s not taller than other olives, its trunk –barely reachable by four people- is huge compared to other trees of that kind –a perimeter of 13,65 meters. The trunk has even a little entrance so you could even guard yourself there in case of a storm. Lately it has been included in the list of Monumental Trees of Aragón. Colungo celebrates its holidays during the Pillar, and during February, 12th, Santa Eulalia’s day.

Asque General Information:

Resting in a soft and sunny slope, you will find the village of Asque overlooking the lands of the Somontano region. The houses of the village are distributed around the main street, showing white facades and earthy colours. Around 1885 the church of Asque was built. It was dedicated to “Santa Columba”, following the dictates of the neogothic style. Across the door you will find the main aisle with lateral chapels. Asque’s most famous product is the honey. It is purely natural and still a source of wealth for the village.
Once in Asque, you could also visit the unique Guadamacil museum of contemporary art. It is an unknown and spectacular pictorial technique from the hispanoarabic culture. It disappeared in the XVIIth century but it was rediscovered again by 1989. It combines painting and relief over a surface of leather.
For a long time, the only way to get to Colungo from Asque was across the Devil’s bridge. It is worth visiting it and its wonderful location in the precipice of Fornocal. The difficulty during its construction and the risk during the process made it popular among the inhabitants of both villages. Some local people would even say the Devil made it himself.
