AGUAS TUERTAS & IBON DE ESTANES
In this two-day tour, we will drive towards the Western Pyrenees to explore The Hecho Valley and make a smooth Pyrenean excursion through Aguas Tuertas to reach the Ibón de Estanés. On the first day, we will make several stops along the way to visit the Romanesque Monastery of San Salvador of Leyre and the Castle of Xavier. Once entered into Aragonese territory, we will head towards the Valley of Hecho to explore the town of Hecho, with its traditional tapered chimneys, and the Romanesque Monastery of San Pedro of Siresa.
Having rested in a quaint and welcoming hotel of Pyrenean style for the night, we will head towards the shelter in the Selva de Oza on the second day, driving through the spectacular Boca del Infierno gorge to then arrive at the base and begin the gentle ascent to the valley of Aguas Tuertas until reaching the spectacular Ibón de Estanés.
