Rest Days in Huesca, Spain

In the summer of 2018, we spent four weeks climbing in Rodellar. The town is small with plenty of outdoor activities to do on our rest day. We did plenty of swimming in the canyon and Salto de Bierge. When we weren’t swimming, we went to Huesca for groceries and city exploring. Here are some of the places and activities we did.


Huesca Catedral - The Catedral is lovely and the best part is walking up to the bell tower and the view of the town. If you’re there on the hour, you can see and definitely hear the bells ringing up close. The Catedral is surrounded by restaurants and shops so be sure to walk every street.

Parque Miguel Servet - We grabbed some food and had lunch at this park. It’s a great place to relax and just people watch and there are shops nearby. Afterward, we walked to a Cafetería Galileo for a coffee. They had a foosball table so we spent some there. If you’re craving churros, Churreria la Asturiana is nearby. We also switched it up one day and ate Chinese food at Restuarante Asia Xing Chao.

Shopping at CC Coso Real - We did our grocery here because the Carrefour is huge. Besides the grocery store, there are small stores. It’s similar to a small shopping mall.


Tatau - A Michelin star restaurant that is worth the stop and it won’t break your wallet. The most expensive dish on the menu was about 30€. We ordered a ton of plates to share. The interior is filled with different movie titles in traditional tattoo artwork.

Pak Doner Kebab House - We love kebabs. They’re delicious, affordable, and a quick way to grab food.

Comomelocomo - This is a little tapas bar with indoor and outdoor seating.

Pastelería Tolosana Huesca - One of the best patisseries in Huesca and inventors of the genuine braid of Almudévar. We bought a few to take back to our cabin.
