an end we believe they will overcome all the difficulties

detected in previous studies and that we will meet all the

previously established goals.

Furthermore, we will hope to establish exercise as a routine part

of the participants’ lives, so that they engage in physical

activity in their free time and use it as a means of overcoming

the effects of old age and the difficulties it creates.

The activities will be offered in the following municipalities:




Cuerlas (Las)




Villanueva de Jiloca

Villarreal de Huerva


The Campo de Daroca administrative area lies to the southwest of

Zaragoza and contains some of the municipalities which formerly

belonged to the old Comunidad de Daroca in the Middle and Modern


The area was once host to three separate communities; Christians,

Jews and Muslims, who managed to live in harmony for many

centuries. One of the products of this period of co-existence was

the development of Mudйjar art, which was an exclusively Spanish

contribution to the world’s artistic heritage, and of particular

relevance in Aragon.

The area to the west of the Jiloca river is known as Campo de

Used, which includes the land which drains into the Gallocanta

lake, which is the largest natural lake in Spain, receiving

thousands of migratory birds every year, most notably the common

crane. Another local highlight is the canyon at Hoces de Torralba

de los Frailes, through which flows the Piedra river in a

spectacular natural setting.

There is more striking landscape to the east of the Jiloca river.

oak woods are still the dominant feature. The hills lead down to

the Campo de Romanos plain, which is known for its cereal crops

and riverside woods, watered by the river Huerva. The other side

of this high plain is marked by abrupt gullies which carry

rainwater down to the River Jiloca and represent an exceptional

landscape of great environmental importance, as, for example, in

the case of Aguallueve de Anento.

The area has good transport links by road along the A-23 (the

“Autovнa Mudйjar”), the N-234 between Soria and Sagunto, in

Valencia, and the A-211 from Daroca to Molina de Aragуn and on to


The climate can be categorised as Mediterranean continental,

with little precipitation and large temperature swings from

season to season (winter is very cold and summer produces high

daytime temperatures and cool nights).

Grave difficulties have resulted from people moving to the cities

and an ageing population. There are 6,623 inhabitants spread over

934 kmІ, and population density is one of the lowest in Spain and

indeed Europe, at 7.09 per kmІ. The area’s largest town is


The population’s economic future and, consequently, its chances

of attracting people back to the area, rely on two vital overall
