Long Distance Paths

Long distance paths, known as GR, that cross the Pyrenees from sea to sea go through the Sobrarbe region. Namely three of them: GR 15, GR 11, GR 1. Three transverse routes that cross this mountain range from East to West, that go through pristine natural areas and villages, exploring wild mountains or descending into the Pyrenean valleys.

The GR1 runs through the Pre-Pyrenean mountain range (i.e., the foothills of the Pyrenees), and offers a route which is both varied and rich in nature and culture.

The GR11, k.a. the Pyrenean path, crosses the Pyrenees and takes you through wild mountains. Without reaching the tops, the path avoids them, surrounds them and passes by Lakes, mountain lakes, valleys and forests encased between the high walls of the National Park of Ordesa and Monte Perdido. The saddle of Añisclo, the cirque of Pineta, the valleys of Barrosa and Chistau...

The GR15 runs parallel with the GR1 and the GR11. In Sobrarbe it passes by Fanlo, Nerín, San Úrbez, Tella, Escuaín or Saravillo.

GR19 is another long distance path that runs through this region. It crosses these lands from North to South and joins the big three transverse GR, much of this GR is part of the Ultra Trail Sobrarbe.

Mention must be made of the recovered last great road, the Camino de San Úrbez, that follows the Saint's steps and that pilgrims of Albella have preserved for many centuries. The road links the canyon of Añisclo to the Church of San Pedro el Viejo in Huesca.
