Panticosa (in Aragonese: Pandicosa[1][2]) is a municipality located in the province of Huesca, Aragon, Spain.

During the late 19th century and early 20th century, it was a successful spa town, famous for its pure mountain waters, that supposedly cured from liver diseases and herpes. Its belle-epoque spa buildings are well kept and still in use.
