WHAT DOES “POSADA” MEANS?
A “posada” is like and inn. In the times of “Don Quixote”, people who traveled long distances would stop at a posada to relax, and eat a good meal.
It comes from the verb “posar” that means to rest, to stop on the way, to sit down on your “posaderas” (your butt).
El posadero or la posadera were the people in charge of the business, usually the owners of the posada.
Nowadays renovated posadas are a trend and an extraordinary way to enjoy rural tourism in Spain.

Going up the interior stairs we access the double bedroom. Again the light floods everything and the views are stunning. It has its own bathroom.
The building in which the Posada de Uncastillo is located occupies a building at the confluence of 2 of the main streets of Uncastillo and a few meters from the Santa María Church. It is fully integrated into a Historic Artistic Site that has remained intact to this day.
Maintaining its exterior appearance, the interior renovation done in its day endowed it with all the needs. The thick stone walls, the wood of the carpentry and the bars of windows and balconies are the hallmark of the whole.
Check out the floorplans:
Uncastillo is next to Sos del Rey Católico, birthplace of King Fernando. Both are two of the most beautiful villages in Aragon. With a multitude of Romanesque churches, castles, walls, Jewish quarters and Renaissance buildings, these 2 impressive medieval ensembles are more than enough to justify a getaway to the Five Villas.
But that is not all, the cultural offer in this part of the Pre-Pyrenees is endless. Thus we can find countless castles and fortifications among which Loarre, Olite or Javier stand out. We also have monasteries such as Leyre or La Oliva. An extensive network of Juderías tells us about the Sephardic past in many villages.
Finally, the Roman past is manifested in the city of Los Bañales that still retains the hot springs and the aqueduct.
The Pre-Pyrenees is a land of contrasts, in a few kilometers we pass from the deserted Bardenas Reales Natural Park to the lush and mountainous Protected Landscape of the Sierra de Santo Domingo.
The ravines, the gullies and the impossible erosions are the protagonists of the most spectacular enclaves of Bardenas Reales such as El Rallón, Pisquerra, La Estroza, Castildeterra or Tripa Azul.
The Well of Pigalo, the Foz de Lumbier, the Mallos de Riglos or Puy Moné are some of the landmarks that mark the landscape of the Pre-Pyrenees full of forests, mid-mountain rivers, ridges and foces. And all in absolute solitude.
In short, a paradise to get lost practicing, among friends, as a couple or as a family, hiking, cycling and mountain biking.
