Birthplace of Santiago Ramón y Cajal
Why not take some time to explore the phenomenon known as 'cajalismo'? The interest in protecting and disseminating the most intimate and familiar legacy of the Nobel Prize winner Santiago Ramón y Cajal has led to this presentation at his birthplace in Petilla de Aragón.

This little 'island' of Navarrese territory surrounded by Aragon was the birthplace of the man who discovered the nerve cell as the basic unit of the human nervous system. Here you will find an educational exhibition on his life and work, and reproductions of his books, awards and personal belongings. In the Aragonese towns of

Ayerbe and Valpalmas there are other venues that take a more in-depth look at the life of this genius.
