"José Cusachs Art and Miniature" in the Jaca's Citadel

A series of 33 miniatures based on the paintings of José Cusach, a famous Spanish military painter (1851-1908), could be seen at the Ciudadela de Jaca (Jaca Citadel).

This itinerant exposition will stay in Jaca from September 10 to November 14, and afterwards it will go to the Military Museums of Valencia and Coruña.

The Casttle of San Pedro (Jaca, Huesca, Spain) also known as 'La Ciudadela' (The Citadel) is a pentagonal fortress, built at the end of the 16th century that still retains today all of its characteristic parts: moat, battlements, scarps, barracks, powder houses, tunnels... as well as a beautiful entrance, accessed via a bridge. The castle lodges in one of its casemates the Museum of Military Miniatures, with over 32,000 lead miniatures displayed on 23 historical dioramas.

This is a good excuse to visit this beautiful place!
