The Living Lab
The region of Aragon, of which Huesca is one of the three provinces, faces a significant problem of depopulation and is the area of Europe with the highest number of abandoned villages; more than 200. In addition, the migration rate of the Province of Huesca is between -6 and 0. Moreover, the province has a gross rate of total population change lower than -6 per every 1000 inhabitants.
Huesca still has not reached the level of both foreign and national visitors that other Spanish regions have reached and could become an alternative tourist destination for other more saturated regions in Spain. Nonetheless, in peak Summer months it does already suffers from over-tourism at particular cultural monuments.
