Guided visits to Jaca’s magnificent monuments will be organised.
Excursions will also be organised to Zaragoza, Huesca and Loarre, to San Juan de la Peña, and locations in the Pyrenees. For mountain outings, students are advised to bring adequate footwear and warm clothing. The excursions are optional and the costs are not included in the enrolment fees.
Students may also attend cultural activities sponsored by a number of institutions which are traditionally offered by the University of Zaragoza during the Jaca Summer Courses. These activities consist of a lecture programme and concerts open to the general public.
In addition, the city council of Jaca organizes several cultural activities during the summer. This year 2017, from 2 to 6 August, the Folkloric Festival of the Pyrenees will take place in Jaca. This festival brings together different groups from the 5 continents (Armenia, Bolivia, Iran, Nicaragua, New Zealand, Uganda, Komi Republic, Czech Republic, Republic of Singapore, Switzerland, Uruguay, Mexico, France and, of course, Spanish groups and the folk groups of Jaca). Moreover, during the second half of August, the historic center of Jaca will become a medieval market with three environments that will recreate the Christian, Muslim and Hebrew cultures, to remember the incessant mercantile activity that was on the Jacobean route. Music, folklore and international culture meet in Jaca each summer.
