Radiquero is situated in the region of Somontano de Barbastro and is in the centre of the Natural Park ‘Sierra y Cañones de Guara’. It shares the municipality with the towns of Alquezar and San Pelegrin, being just a few kilometres away from both.
As well, Radiquero is one of the towns that belongs to the Río Vero Cultural Park, a cultural space where cave paintings, monuments, medieval towns and ethnographic heritage co-exist in harmony with nature. This environment is home to an extraordinary collection of more than 60 refuges (called “abrigos”) of cave paintings that have been recognized by UNESCO and declared a World Heritage Site.
The gastronomy of the region is worth a special mention with wines of Denomination of Origin of Somontano, Radiquero cheese, el Ternasco of Aragon, extra virgin olive oil, ‘aguardientes’-local liquor, and desserts typical of the area, etc.
One of the major attractions of this region lies in its rich and varied fauna, of which stand out the birds of prey such as the bearded vulture, the golden eagle, the tawny vulture, the águila-azor perdicera, the Egyptian vulture, the wallcreeper, etc. This great diversity of birds gave way to the declaration of the area as Z.E.P.A. (Special protected area for birds) in 1989, achieving the development and stability of an abundance of species.
Besides being an idyllic place for nature lovers, there are infinite sports that one can enjoy in the open air. From short family treks and mountain biking, horse-back riding, group activities such as Paintball, to more demanding excursions lasting various days.
Thanks to the erosion created by the rivers Vero and Alcanadre, the landscape appears to have been carefully chiselled, creating ravines and canyons where fans of adventure sports (rock-climbing, canyoning and rafting) can find a virtual paradise.
