Know the environment
This mountain village is truly beautiful. Its country houses and treasures such as the Romanesque Nuestra Señora de Pineta Chapel make the old quarter a real delight. Close to the Parador there is an entrance to Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park, which has been declared a World Heritage Site. It is a treasure trove of spectacular craggy peaks, beautiful waterfalls, fairytale pine woods and mountain tops blanketed in white year round.
This is nature at its purest, offering a number of options for sporting activities. The rivers wend their way through rocky gorges, providing a paradise for fans of canyoning and canyon rappelling. Trails for mountain biking or hiking are also sure to seem an excellent choice. The scenery along the Cinca River waterfall trail and the trail to Lake Marboré is spectacular.
