Aragon is bounded on the north by France, on the east by Catalonia, on the south by Valencia, and on the west by Castile-La Mancha, Castile-Leon, La Rioja, and Navarre.
Aragon is an ancient land composed of three provinces: Zaragoza (Saragossa); remote Teruel, which is farther south and Huesca; Most of Aragon constitutes terra incognita for the average tourist- which is unfortunate, since it is one of the most historic regions of Spain.
Zaragoza is the Aragon capital, and one of the most-visited destination in the region, the reason being because it lies on the main route between Madrid and Barcelona.
