What to Expect
The Knights Templars spent over a hundred years in Monzón and turned its castle into one of the most important fortresses in Aragon’s medieval kingdom. On this full-day excursion you’ll learn about the history of this castle and the mysterious military order that occupied it.

Following the castle tour you’ll visit a charming family winery that belongs to Denominación de Origen Somontano, certifying its production of top-quality Spanish wines. Explore the facilities with the owner and learn about the process of making wine. After tasting some of their fine wines, you’ll visit the Templar chapel next to the winery.
