It´s easy to get to other parts of the Pyrenees such as the Ansó and Roncal valleys to the West and Aragüés del Puerto, Jasa and Aísa to the East. Taking the smaller roads between the valleys you´ll pass through incredible scenery. Heading South you are near San Juan de La Peña, Jaca, Los Mallos de Riglos in Aragón and the Foz de Lumbier and Salazar Valley in Navarra while Ordesa and the Valle de Aspe in France are only 90 minutes away.
This valley was the birthpalce of the kingdom of Aragón and the area has some superb examples of Romanesque architecture and art. In Siresa the monastery church is an outstanding Romanesque building while in Jaca you have Spain´s first catedral and the ´´Sistine Chapel´´ of Romanesque painting in the Diocesan Museum. Other local jewels are San Juan de La Peña and many small village churches.
Oui, oui, oh la la! Francia is a step away
If you fancy visiting France you can hike there over the mountains or cross by car via the Somport tunnel or the Larra Belagua pass to discover the North side of the Pyrenees with landscapes, villages and a way of life quite different to here but similar at the same time.
