The famous area of Aragon, Spain -- formerly the Kingdom of Aragon -- is home to a large amount of history. The major city in Aragon is Zaragoza, which was originally established by the Romans and then later conquered by the Muslims from the south, who then in turn were conquered by the Navarre from the west. It is home to a rich amount of royal history and conflict, and at the height of its popularity also saw rule over Catalonia, parts of Italy, and also part of Greece under the Crown of Aragon.
Zaragoza is where you will find majority of the hostels in Aragon, Spain. You will not need any more than a day or two to explore the city here. You should definitely stop in and spend some time at the Aljaferia. The building has some of the most impressive Islamic architecture in all of Spain. The city is also home to some impressive churches. You will find that here, like in a lot of parts of Spain that there is a real fusion of different cultural and religious influences in the buildings, based on the number of different conquests of Spain over the years.
You will find an Aragon, Spain hostel in each of the towns scattered up along the border of France through the Pyrenees mountain ranges; these Aragon, Spain hostels will need to be accessed by car. There are no Aragon, Spain hostels at the largest town in the northern part of the region, Huesca, which is odd given that this was the old capital of Aragon until the twelfth century. There are a few good things to do here if you have the time and are passing through.
Majority of the other Aragon, Spain hostels are in small towns a small distance off the highway as you head south toward Valencia. Most of these Aragon, Spain hostels -- as with those in the north -- would need to be accessed by car.
