DESCRIPTION

 

The Entremón is a canyon that the Cinca river has excavated on limestone rocks. Apart from the unquestionable visual spectacle that we are going to enjoy, there is a very important historical-medieval component. The landmark of the route are the so-called “Samitier Castles”. Built between 1030 and 1050 by Ramiro I (first king of Aragon) in full reconquest, advancing south and consolidating positions. Two large reservoirs begin and end here: Mediano and El Grado. There are 3 recommended departure points with services. With this smoother variant we avoid the hard climb along the entrevito path, ascending by road. The loop of the mine house is also avoidable by road.

 

TERRAIN

 

37% trail. Calcareous in general

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

 

Be gentle with the hikers you see. Look north and south for a long time from the Castles of Samitier. This way we will understand the geography of the area.
