Parroquial de Agüero
        Saint Salvador Church

     The parochial in this village is an interesting building that began to be built in the XI century. It is dedicated to Saint Salvador. It was started to build on a plant with an only nave and apse but it was finished in gothic style  Facade of the Agüero Parochial with lateral naves and an ogival door that is now covered with a curious atrium of which we can see the entrance to the crypt of the XVII century; this crypt became parochial museum. Inside, next to baroque reteeables, there is a major reteable (probably built in the XVI century), a curious Romanic winding stairs and a wonderful organ dated in the XVIII century restored by Louis Galindo who was the Parish priest of the village. (The Parish priest nowadays is Richard Mur Saura).
      In Modern Ages, along XVI and XVII centuries this place increases its parochial treasure. There was a reliquary dated in the XVI century. It was a very interesting piece which has a crucifix and a demountable virile. In the XVI century some devices such as a frontal, a chasuble, some dalmatics, a pluvial cape, some gremial and cloth for fascitol made of streaky velvet silk with a great care. All these pieces have the donor's coat of arms: Francisco Aznárez, a man who was the superior in Agüero's church between the years 1527 and 1560 and later he was a canon in Jaca where he died in 1562. There are two things left belonging to XVII century: a silver parochial cross in whose base there is a circular-plant basilica and Bigger Altarpiece a tank to keep oil paintings with a candelabrum shape. The parochial treasure is completed with several choir books and a Romanic virgin, which may belong to XIII century.
     This is a piece dated at the end of XI century and consequently the parochial tympanum in this area has got a great value. A Romanic tympanum with the Maiestas Domini Cristo in Majestic at the front escorted by the four Evangelists' symbols or tetramorphes. Tympanum that clergymen who were born here would contemplate: Fray Angel Palace and doctor Pantaleon Palacio and Villacampa. The first one, Angel Palacio was a Carmelite and an Art professor at Huesca University, and then he was an Art professor at Rome University and finally Carmelites province in Araoán since 1617. the other one, Pantaleon Palacio, was a canon in Huesca and in 1642 he was a Prima professor at Canons University in Huesca. In 1646 he was a canon in El Pilar in Zaragoza and then he was a judge in Aragon reign. Proposed by Felipe IV the Pope Alejandro VII named him abbot of Montearagón and he was consecrated as an abbot on October twenty-ninth 1662 in Jaca cathedral. When he dies in 1665 he will be buried in the abbatial pantheon in the Royal House in Montearagón.
