Existing parks in Aragon

At this time in Aragon there launched five Cultural Parks.

A brief description is as follows:

Molinos Cultural Park

It is the oldest of them all, and therefore the most developed.

Born in the town that bears its name, as an initiative of the City Council, and in order to enhance their heritage and use it as a catalyst for the people themselves and the region.
The town has a Gothic church from the late fifteenth century and retains its medieval urbanism. In the vicinity karstic cavities, some of which are known and visited once in the region, such as the cave of Graderas are. From these elements and the recovery of the old wash for use as a museum or rather as a permanent exhibition of flora, fauna, geology, paleontology and traditional uses of natural resources, it started the germ of the current cultural park.

Aliaga Geological Park.

The municipality of Aliaga is located in a privileged area from a geological point of view. Nestled in the Aragonese branch of the Iberian Massif, Aliaga is named after a geological formation that can be observed with great ease the transition between the primary and secondary periods. The reliefs, folds, geological formations, are sometimes "book" resulting in a landscape of extraordinary beauty that has long attracted numerous experts in geology.

River Martin Cultural Park.

The average length of Martín river runs through stunning gorges cut in limestone formations. It covers an area of 160 km2 and affects nine municipal councils. Contains, besides cave paintings Alacón, Obon, Alcaine and Albalate of the Archbishop, the secondary and tertiary paleontological sites, archaeological sites such as the Iberian Saint Pedro de Griegos, with a conserved building 12 m. tall and magnificent sets of popular architecture, with excellent examples of monumental architecture as the castle Albalate or the church Alcaine. It retains most of the traditional paths of medieval origin, some of them paved and from the standpoint of natural values one of the most numerous colonies of birds of prey of Aragon.
