Ordesa National Park
Ordesa Valley is located in the central Pyrenees of Huesca, Sobrarbe, Aragon (Spain). It is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
This valley led to the creation of the Ordesa National Park on August 16th, 1918. Years later, in 1982, would be extended to create the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park, including the massif of Monte Perdido, the Añisclo Canyon, the Escuain Gorges and the head of the Valley of Pineta.
Añisclo Canyon is located in the Pyrenees of Huesca (South of Monte Perdido ), running southward. It has a length of about 10 kilometers (from Circus Añisclo to the confluence with the river Aso). It is due to the erosive action of water on limestone, which for centuries has carved beautiful forms in the rock, waterfalls, pools, etc.
The Escuaín Valley, or Gorge, is the less known and smallest valley of those comprised in the National Park. Nevertheless, its dramatic scenery is worth to be mentioned, especially its gorges and narrow passes.
Large meadows and fields were open amid the ancient forest. Escuaín is home to a rich nature: an awesome group of caves and pit cave, especially in the Gurrundué area, a large mixed forest on the northern slope of the Castillo Mayor and an exceptionally diverse fauna, especially in the case of the bearded vulture.
Valle de Tena
Located in the heart of the Aragonese Pyrenees and surrounded by stunning tall clumps, Tena Valley is noted for its magnificent scenery mixing the beauty of its rocks, woods and lakes, with their typical architecture of mountain villages.
A complete tourist infrastructure mainly driven by major ski resorts of Formigal and Panticosa make the Valley a must destination for skiers and all sports and nature in general.
Snow in winter, pleasant summer temperatures, water and life in spring, beautiful fall colors and lights.
Canyons of Guara
Guara Peak (2077m) gives name to this location in the Huesca Pre-Pyrenees. There, the Alcanadre, Mascún, Isuala and Vero rivers have opened way through its fractures in the limestone terrain, giving place to deep ravines gorges and canyons. The water carves the rock and polishes it, creating corridors, slopes, leaps and beautiful natural pools. The falling of large boulders on the ravine’s basin created labyrinths and chaos through which the water seeks an exit. At the exit of the ravines we will find amazing vertical walls, pronounced crests and sharp pointers, open cavities in the rocky peaks…
Yebra de Basa Churches
Interesting route which highlights the surprising number of shrines that we will meet and magnificent views over the ascension of Valle de Basa, but without doubt the most spectacular place the entire route constitute the set of cave chapels San Cornelio and La Cueva, who are literally embedded between large stone walls, on which falls from great height the waters of the Barranco de Santa Orosia forming an impressive waterfall known as El Chorro.
