In the region of Alto Gállego, deep into the Tena valley, we find Panticosa, a first-class tourist town with a ski resort for alpine and cross-country skiing. Panticosa is a charming village on the course of the Caldares river, with traditional large houses made of stone, which line steep, narrow streets. It also has a Romanesque church from the 13th century.
Surrounded by beautiful and majestic mountains, dotted by lakes, and peaks higher than 3000 m, this town is the ideal place for mountain sports. Panticosa is famous for its spa, which still has its old luxury hotels, promenades and casinos, and used to be the holiday destination of the royal family. It is also known for its winter resort, with pistes that can be accessed from a wide esplanade by the riverbank, from which the bottom chair lift departs. During the summer, we can ride that same chair lift to the lakes of Asnos and Sabocos. At the nearby Lanuza reservoir, by an abandoned lakeside town, the Southern Pyrenees Music Festival takes place every year during the summer.
