Municipality located in central and southeastern Sobrarbe. At the confluence of the Cinca and Ara rivers sits the municipal capital, the historic medieval town of Aínsa. The municipality also incorporates the eastern foothills of the Sierra de Guara: an area historically known as “Biello Sobrarbe” or “Tierra Buxo”.
It is an extremely extensive municipality that encompasses more than 20 towns and villages, several of which are now uninhabited, although they enjoyed great importance in times past.
Owing to the restoration of the majority of the pathways that linked these conurbations to each other, the area is fantastic for hiking, with wooded, rocky landscapes punctuated by small villages where walkers can discover superb examples of folk architecture and Romanesque heritage.
There are 14 routes, which depart from the municipality’s towns and villages and offer:
– Views over the Mediano reservoir.
– Areas containing fossils of great geological importance.
– Ascents of the Sierra de Arbe.
– Ascent to Samitier Castle.
– Route through Entremón Gorge.
