Echo is a village in Aragon. The town has pretty stone houses, is surrounded by formidable mountains, and hiking trails abound.

Get in

Best to have your own transport. There is one bus a day to and from Jaca that serves Echo and the nearby towns of Ansó and Siresa.

  • Museo Etnologico Casa Mazo. Close to the Plaza Mayor of Echo, the museum is housed in an old stone house. Exhibits illustrate the lives of the people of the valley in earlier centuries (Echo was once the capital of Aragon).

Echo
by Christina Rossetti
From Goblin Market and Other Poems (1862)

Come to me in the silence of the night;
   Come in the speaking silence of a dream:
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright
   As sunlight on a stream;
      Come back in tears,
O memory, hope, love of finished years.


Oh dream how sweet, too sweet, too bitter sweet,
   Whose wakening should have been in Paradise,
Where souls brimfull of love abide and meet;
   Where thirsting longing eyes
      Watch the slow door
That opening, letting in, lets out no more.


Yet come to me in dreams, that I may live
   My very life again though cold in death:
Come back to me in dreams, that I may give
   Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:
      Speak low, lean low,
As long ago, my love, how long ago!

From LoveToKnow 1911

ECHO (Gr. iiXw), in Greek mythology, one of the Oreades or mountain nymphs, the personification of the acoustical phenomenon known by this name. She was beloved by Pan, but rejected his advances. Thereupon the angry god drove the shepherds of the district mad; they tore Echo in pieces, and scattered her limbs broadcast, which still retained the gift of song (Longus iii. 23). According to Ovid (Metam. iii. 356-401), Echo by her incessant talking having prevented Juno from surprising Jupiter with the Nymphs, Juno changed her into an "echo" - a being who could not speak till she was spoken to, and then could only repeat the last words of the speaker. While in this condition she fell in love with Narcissus, and in grief at her unrequited affection wasted away until nothing remained but her voice and bones, which were changed into rocks. The legends of Echo are of late, probably Alexandrian, origin, and she is first personified in Euripides.

In acoustics an "echo" is a return of sound from a reflecting surface (see SOUND: Reflection). See F. Wieseler, Die Nymphe Echo (1854), and Narkissos (1856); P. Decharme in Daremberg and Saglio's Dictionnaire des antiquites.
