Unique surroundings.  They will surprise you.

ARAGÓN SEA

The Aragón Sea, Reservoir of Mequinenza, was formed through the construction of a dam of the same name in the bed of the Ebro river.  This great inland sea stretches over 110 km, dividing the Monegros from the Bajo Aragón.  Its dimensions are of such magnitude that it has transformed everything that surrounds it: the climate, the economy of some of the towns and even the people’s character.

The lake’s shores are of great and unexpected beauty.  Pine-tree covered glens, endless beaches, cliffs, the banks covered by poplar and willow trees: these are all postcards rotating in an endless sequence.

Around the Aragón Sea the characteristic steppe fauna and flora cohabits with moor and shore species.  Herons and gulls share their habitat with kites and deer.

LOCATION

An average altitude of 142m explains the name of this area, the low-land or Lower Aragón, in the easternmost corner of Zaragoza province.  It is crossed by both the Ebro, which here turns into the Aragón Sea, and the Greenwich Meridian, which means that half the land is in the planet’s east and half in the west, a curiosity which symbolizes the differences between the area’s villages.

LANDSCAPE

The landscape shows clear contrasts, from the areas close to the Monegros, which are quite arid, with moorland, steppes and dry lands, to areas that are home to small pine and oak woods interspersed with scrubland. There are also olive groves and extensive irrigated vegetable gardens. There are abundant precipices and cliffs that give onto the Aragón Sea, as well as woods along the shores that are home to numerous interesting fauna.

The shores of the Aragón Sea are like a long oasis, at the centre of which is Lake Caspe Campsite, in the shadow of hundreds of pines, poplars and palms.

PEOPLE AND VILLAGES

South of the Ebro we find the land traditionally known as Lower Aragón, a large territory that goes from the Ebro to the Eastern edges of the Iberian System mountains. It is cut by the rivers Martín, Guadalope and Matarraña, the valleys of which, among farms and olive groves, are home to the main towns. It conserves natural landscapes of great beauty and wealth.

Lower Aragón is a true archaeological museum, where one can still see remains from all prehistorical cultural periods and from the area’s ancient history. Through the centuries its inhabitants have also created a great artistic and cultural heritage, examples of which are the villages of Calaceite, Valderrobres and La Fresneda, or the towns of Alcañiz and Caspe.

CLIMATE

The area, with a Mediterranean climate, and slight maritime influence given its proximity to the Mediterranean coast, sees just 350 litres of rain a year. On the other hand, we receive more than 2,600 hours of sun a year.

The evaporation from the Aragón Sea, of over 80,000 million litres a year, and the WNW winds, all contribute to mild summer temperatures.

From March to November the temperature is wonderful and July is the hottest month, with an average of 25º.
