The village of Estada is located in the Cinca Valley, next to the Aragon to Catalunya canal.

The name of the village comes from the Latin word "Stata" which refers to a stop along a Roman municipal road. The town's origins lie in Villa Stata, an important fortified agricultural settlement of late Roman times (6th century). The intricate mosaics belonging to the villa’s noble rooms are now kept in the Provincial Museum of Zaragoza.

It was retaken from the Moors in 1087 by Pedro I and was fortified.  

The parish church is dedicated to San Pedro and was built in the 18th century, constructed using the original foundations of the Roman church, which it replaced. The doorway and the stone facade with their curves and flowing lines, express the language of the new baroque style. The tower, decorated with ceramic adornments and geometric shapes using layered bricks, highlights the unique neo-Mudéjar flair.

"El Ciego" Reservoir where the river comes to a halt, provides an important wetland that is inhabited by mallards, herons, cormorants and hibernating gulls.
