How to arrive:

The viewpoints of the Sierras Ibéricas and the Somontano Ibérico are located on the top of the hill in the terrace of the chapel Virgen de la Sierra de Herrera, which is in the boundaries of Teruel and Zaragoza provinces. The chapel is shared by several towns when celebrating their pilgrimage, and among all these towns is included the village of Nogueras, whose inhabitants ascent the pathway to the chapel by walking or either by car. A thick pine and holm oak forest covers the hillsides.

From the viewpoint of the Sierras Ibéricas you can see the Jiloca Valley, Sierra Menera, the San Ginés Hill and the Cucalón mountain range.

The chapel was built in 1504, just at the same place that according to tradition, the Virgin appeared to Martín, a coal merchant.

The latest construction around the chapel is from the XVII and XVIII centuries.

The panoramic views are extraordinary as on clear days you even can see the Pyrenees.
