Hostería de Guara – The gateway to the Guara's Sierra and canyons

East of Sierra de Guara

The Natural Park of the Sierras and Gorges of Guara is a beautiful and rather remote, depopulated area in the Pre-Pyrenees. It is popular among climbers and canyon-trekkers and holds an authentic architectural treasure in the form of the walled Medieval town of Alquézar.

Winding roads, lost villages, tranquillity and eye-opening scenery all demand that birding this area, however rewarding it may be, should be done at a relaxed pace.
