Bridge the Queen is the only case in Aragon. Modern biult-up area that arose spontaneously in a crossing of highways (towards Pamplona, Pony, Huesca and vale of Fact), Saint Engracia and Javierregay was chosen as head office of the new municipality arisen from the merger of ancient.

This municipality formed by the populations of Bridge the Queen, Saint Engracia and Javierregay is located in the Channel of Berdún (region of The Jacetania) that forms a longitudinal depression covered by the river Aragon These populations, eminently rural, they are provided with an excellent geographical place that turns them into a natural route of linkage between the vales pirenaicos, and in an excellent starting point to visit the natural and cultural patrimony that surrounds them. The craft, the pilgrimages and holidays, as well as the Milky Way, are a part of a wide cultural, elegant legacy spoilt by his peoples.

The scenery of this zone allows the achievement of numerous playful activities. The big flatness, together with his fluvial ravines they allow to realize jaunts in bicycle, on horseback or simply walking.
