The area of the Aragonese Pyrenees has many natural spaces and a very wide historical content, being also a fantastic area to practice skiing since there are several stations and also to do several routes either on foot, on horseback, by bicycle …
The Aragonese Pyrenees is in the northern part of the province of Huesca and has several routes designed so that you can see the best landscapes while practicing some sport. Take note of the 2 most important routes:
– Route Jaca – Valle de Ansó and Hecho : The departure is from Jaca, 75 km from Huesca. From there it goes towards the valleys of Ansó and Hecho, which are in the westernmost part of the Pyrenees and through which you find fantastic views and several picturesque villages.
– Route Jaca- San Juan de la Peña – Monastery of Leyre- Javier : Also leaving Jaca you go to San Juan de la Peña, where you can visit what was the most important monastery in Aragon in the Middle Ages. From there you continue to the Monastery of Leyre, one of the most important monastic complexes in Spain. The route ends in Javier, a town where one of the few castles that have almost all of its structures is preserved.
In all the routes you will find spectacular landscapes and you will discover all kinds of towns, the ones I like the most are the medieval ones. If you like snow, you can stop by the Candanchú ski resort , the most famous in the area and where you will have a lot of slopes and places of leisure to enjoy a few days of vacation.
