Ainsa, Huesca - SPAIN

Ainsa is a small village located near the Pyrénées and the gateway to the UNESCO site "Mont Perdu" (I wonder if can include it in the UNESCO collection?... better not). Thanks a lot Pillar for the postcard and the interesting message you wrote. This postcard took 6 days to arrive!

Ainsa (Plaza Mayor), Huesca - SPAIN
The historic quarter of the village of Ainsa, declared a Historic-Artistic site, is formed by a group of houses that are packed together in the most harmonious and uniform of ways, among which the slender tower of the collegiate church stands out, as well as the enormous premises of the castle, almost as big as the rest of the town. The walls that surrounded the town centuries ago remain almost intact today, the town itself being filled with monuments that bring us back to the Middle Ages.
