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

Sierra de Guara West

The Sierra de Guara meets an abrupt end along its southern face, where it enlivens the horizons to the north of Huesca. Vertical rock faces, fascinating formations, gorges, and narrow winding rivers.

And, except at the height of the tourist season, plenty of solitude. Another thing: the variety of birds that can be seen here is as impressive as the views..
