Aragon

Aragonia (English), L'Aragon (French), Aragona (Italian), Aragón (Spanish), Aragão (Portuguese).

The autonomous region (Spanish: Aragón, Cat. Aragó) with the capital Zaragoza is located in the northeast of Spain and covers 47,717 km². The north is dominated by the Pyrenees, whose main ridge forms the northern border with France along its entire length. It borders Catalonia to the east, Valenciana to the southeast and Castile-La Mancha, Castile-León, Rioja and Navarre to the west. The region is divided into the three provinces of Huesca, Zaragoza and Teruel.

History

Wine growing was already practised here by the Romans. In the 11th century, after the Moors had been pushed southwards, an independent kingdom emerged, which in the meantime included the Balearic Islands, Navarre and Sicily, and from the 12th century also Catalonia. It existed until the end of the 15th century and was then incorporated with other territories into the Spanish Empire. Viticulture has been practised here since the 2nd century BC.
