Field Trips: The Ainsa Basin, Aragon, Spain.

Hi guys,

Thank God it’s friday!

Today I’ll be featuring another #Flashbackfriday to my trip to Ainsa, Spain on a geology field trip with a few of my colleagues from work.

One of the memorable things about this field trip is the fact that we took a road trip from France to Ainsa and had the opportunity to see so many beautiful landscapes and passed through several towns before arriving at Ainsa.

Aínsa is the main town in the Ainsa-Sobrarbe municipal term, Aragon, Spain. It is located south of the Pyrenees, in a geologically interesting setting. Besides the surrounding mountain landscape, the 12th-century Iglesia parroquial de Santa María church and the 11th-century castle are the main sights of the town.

Our Hotel: Le Monasterio de Boltana

This is still one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed at.

Although this was a work trip and quite physically challenging as all field trips, it was a fun trip which I will always fondly remember.

I hope to visit Spain again in the near future and hopefully it would be a holiday visit.

Anyone been to Spain or Ainsa?

I would love to hear of your experience.

Enjoy your weekend!
