Moreover, the castle of Loarre was founded by the great monarch Sancho III the Big and it is a real jewel of civil and military architecture of that age. Raised on a rocky rig at 3513 feet high, it defended the Kingdom of Aragón's border line and it became key for the Christians to conquer these lands from the Muslims.
