The valleys of the Aragonese Pyrenees

There is nothing comparable to the alpine landscape of the Aragonese Pyrenees, where you can discover the real meaning of concepts such as mountain, snow and nature. High snowy peaks, autumn forests mixed with intense colors, rivers, lakes, ski resorts and medieval villages. Welcome to Aragonese Pyrenees.

From West to East: Hecho and Ansó valleys, River Aragon valley, Tena valley, Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park, Chistau valley, valley of Benasque and High Noguera Ribagorzana River valleys.


Sierra de Guara, where canyoning in Europe was born, is considered a Paradise by adventure sports fans, due to the great variety of chances. River Vero Cultural Park hides a remarkable natural and artistic legacy. Its more than sixty shelters become it in a real outdoor museum.

Unique natural spaces, towns where time seems to stop, legendary monuments and adventure tourism. Kingdom of 'Los Mallos'Huesca city, Somontano de Barbastro and Cinco Villas, in the province of Zaragoza, proudly display their magnificent monuments, testimony to centuries of history.

The Monegros desert

You are going to be captivated by desert landscapes, unique in Europe. Los Monegros, the largest desert in Europe, hosts ancient monasteries and important vestiges of the Spanish Civil War. 

If you enjoy hiking, follow one of the signposted paths of Jubierre. Monegros has already been depicted as a black-and-white territory. Several salted lakes, lagoons and natural pools prove this, along with the largest desert in Europe. Sariñena’s lagoon is the most famous, making possible aquatic bird-watching.

The Sierra de Alcubierre is its backbone. The fascinating Orwell Route passes through here, with well-preserved and restored trenches and defences from the Spanish Civil War, where the British writer George Or­well fought alongside the Republicans.

Nearby, in Villanueva de Sigena, the Romanesque Mon­astery of Sigena is refuge to the tombs of members of the Aragon royal family. This village also offers a museum devoted to the scientist Miguel Servet, whose birth house is still standing here. Close from Sariñena lies the monastery ‘Cartuja de Nuestra Señora de las Fuentes’, one of the earliest built in the kingdom of Aragón. Its biggest appeal is in the inside, as it holds paintings by ‘Fray’ Manuel Bayeu, Goya’s brother-in-law.

And in the nearby Adventure Park of ‘La Gabarda’ grown-up’s and children will have a great time with zip lines, hanging bridges, tree climbing… and much more in a privileged natural location.

The low course of the Cinca River

By the Cinca River surroundings, open up your eyes and watch out all these fertile orchards, homeland to celebrities, which speak about ancient traditions and a rich heritage legacy. Make sure to visit the town of Fonz, one of the most interesting Renaissance heritages in Aragón. Not far from here, you’ll be amazed by the silhou­ette of the Templar Castle of Monzón, of Moorish origins and historically related to the legend of El Cid.

Near Fraga, are the remains of Villa Fortunatus, an important Ro­man rural villa in use between the 2nd and 6th centu­ries, which contains remarkable mosaics.

Located among the towns of Caspe, Chiprana, Mequinenza and Fayón, the largest Ebro swamp opens up, also known as Aragón’s Sea, a privileged place for adventure and water sports and a reference for fishing enthusiasts all over Europe.
