Throughout this full-day private tour, we will discover some of the most emblematic and beautiful places in the Aragonese Pyrenees, travelling through lovely natural landscapes and charming Pyrenean villages.
On our way to the Pyrenees, going trough the western part of Huesca province, we will discover amazing natural landscapes. The majestic Mallos of Riglos, the mountain pass of Santa Bárbara, the astonishing Gorge of Biniés, the lush valley of Ansó and the charming valley of Hecho.
Our first stop will be in Ansó, a Pyrenean village located close to Navarre and France, considered as one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. Through its cobbled streets, we will discover the history of Ansó and the features of the traditional Pyrenean architecture.
We will cross the Collado de Terit, the mountain pass which symbolises the border between the valley of Ansó and the valley of Hecho, and we will head toward one of the most amazing places in the Western Pyrenees, the forest of Oza, a gorgeous protected natural area surrounded by huge mountains and beech and fir forests. We will have a pleasant walk to enjoy the pure Pyrenean air and to take some outstanding photos of the wonderful landscapes that the Aragón-Subordán river has created along its riverside.
Lunchtime. We will arrive in Hecho, the emblematic village which plays the role of capital of the valley, witness to the history of the Pyrenees over the centuries. This charming village keeps very interesting examples of traditional architecture, old and modern. We will have a walk discovering the most interesting and important facts about Hecho and after you will enjoy and taste the modern Pyrenean gastronomy in one of the best restaurants in Huesca province.
After lunch, we will go across the valley of Hecho and we will visit the magnificent Monastery of San Pedro de Siresa. Built more than 10 centuries ago, this Romanesque monastery is proud of having been the refuge of the Holy Grail during the moorish occupation of the Iberian Peninsula.
