From Roman origin, Radiquero, Rad Icarium or place rich in roots, it was one of the small towns that made up the Somontano region.

The landscape dotted with holm oaks and aromatic plants such as thyme, rosemary and lavender mixed with the crops of vines, almond trees and olive trees, mostly centenary, characterize the typical landscape of the towns located in the Sierra de Guara and especially of Radiquero .

In a ravine in the Sierra de Guara, dug by the river Vero, stands the collegiate church of Santa María la Mayor, and at its feet the medieval town of the town of Alquézar declared a Historic-Artistic Site.


Above the Romanesque Collegiate Church, an old Muslim fortress. Below the village is grouped in the shape of a half moon to symbolize the Arab origin of the population. It owes its name to the castle or Al-Qasr built to defend the access to the capital of Barbitanya (Barbastro).
