Description

The stretch of this path through Aragon runs from east to west along the sierras of the Pyrenees foothills, forming an extremely varied and very beautiful route.

It crosses a great many different regions and areas, all of which have a common feature: the great natural, cultural and historic wealth that accompanies this path as it runs west.
On leaving Catalan land, the stretch through Aragon begins in Puente de Montañana/Lo Pont de Montanyana and, after crossing the River Noguera Ribagorzana, begins its run along the southernmost part of the Region of La Ribagorza. Valleys to have undergone an extreme rural exodus are joined together and places of great historic value linked, such as Graus, Loarre or Sos del Rey Católico.
The last part runs from Árguis to the border with Navarra, combining such attractive and varied landscapes as the sierras of Gratal, Loarre, Santo Domingo, los Mallos de Riglos and Agüero, the deep cleft of the River Gállego and the Altas Cinco Villas. Together with these are the countless villages with top class historic-artistic monuments, from Loarre to Sos, in which Aragon Romanesque reached its utmost splendour.
A stretch of this path enters the Park of La Sierra y Cañones de Guara (declared by law in 1990). The interest in this natural area lies in the combination of the spectacular karstic relief (dolines, canyons, caverns, etc.) with a unique flora, it being the crossroads for Atlantic and Mediterranean atmospheres, favouring the formation of varied ecosystems and the appearance of interesting endemisms.
Take note that it is only completely signposted from Puente de Montañana/Lo Pont de Montanyana to Mesón de Ligüerre. From this point and until what is known as Mesón Nuevo de Arguis (on the western border of the park), three small stretches are not signposted: in the north: Samitier - Arcusa - Park Border, in the south: Ligüerre de Cinca - Abizanda - Naval - Park Border and from Mesón Nuevo to Arguis. From this point until the border with Navarra, it is only signalled by paint marks.
