The Morillo de Tou Traditional Pottery Centre
Morillo de Tou is not just a normal Aragonese village in the province of Huesca. Its whole existence changed radically when work began on the Mediano reservoir, which holds water collected practically from the point where the River Cinca meets and merges with the River Ara up to the village of Aínsa.
Construction of the dam led directly to the expropriation
of the village of Morillo de Tou and several other villages along
the banks of the Cinca, whose fields were lost under the waters.
This naturally meant that the village was abandoned and fell into
ruin. Nevertheless, after many years, successful attempts were
made to persuade the Environment Ministry to assign the village
for a fixed period to the CC.OO. trade union with the intention
of restoring Morillo de Tou’s streets and buildings and
converting them into a tourist attraction.

The building that now houses the collections of the Provincial museum of Huesca was once called the Sertorian University. Founded by Pedro IV in 1354 it was also the residence of the kings of Aragon when they were visiting the city of Huesca. This Royal Palace, or what remains of it, is a good example of the civil Romanesque style. There remain two connected buildings of sandstone masonry from the end of the XII century and the beginning of the XIII.

The Hecho Museum of contemporary sculpture
The Hecho Open-Air Museum of Contemporary Sculpture, which stands at the entrance to the village of Hecho, is divided up into several separate exhibition spaces. Firstly, there is the large open-air space reserved for the majority of the large-scale sculptures owned by the museum. To one side of this field dotted with sculptures is a building used to exhibit paintings and small sculptures. Finally, a visit around the streets of Hecho will enable the visitor to inspect several examples of the plastic arts on display in the open-air.
Miguel Servet's Museum House
July 2003 marked the first anniversary of the visitor centre created in the house in Villanueva de Sijena which was the birthplace of "Miguel Servet(Michael Servetus)", one of Aragon’s most famous sons. The Centre provides a journey through his life and multi-faceted works as mathematician, astrologer, geographer, translator, physician and theologian.
The Visitor Centre is located in a sixteenth-century
palace, was officially declared a Site of Special Cultural Interest
in 1990 and was eventually restored for use as a museum. The front
of the building has preserved some Gothic text from the time of
its construction, as well as the entrance archway. The current
door is an exact reproduction of the original and retains the
original door handle and knocker. The cobbled entrance hall has
maintained the winepresses, which have fortunately been saved.
