With its sun-baked hill towns, olive groves and terraced vineyards Matarranya, invites comparisons with Tuscany. But unlike its Italian counterpart, this remote corner of Aragon is blissfully off the tourist trail. Ibex still roam the rocky hillsides and the medieval villages seem to be frozen in time. It may be wild, but this region is easily reached – Ryanair flies into Reus, 70 miles away. Explore the beautiful towns of Valderrobres, Calaceite or La Fresneda. Visit the prehistoric settlements in Calaceite and the cave paintings in Cretas and Beceite. Moreover, quite a variety of visitors often hike, bike or horse-ride through the stunning gorges of the Puertos de Beceite national park, stopping to cool off in one of the many turquoise pools.
