This trip will introduce you to the Sierra de Guara, the land of seventy canyons, an oasis of unspoilt wilderness with a Mediterranean climate south of the Pyrenees. The route we suggest is a circular tour. The route takes you alongside two enormous turquoise lakes whist the road that takes you back to Ainsa crosses a vast unpopulated scrubland streaked withochre and grey cliffs where griffon vultures and other raptors circle overhead. En route: the stunning shrine of Torreciudad, Alquézar, the jewel in the crown of Guara, and splendid viewpoints, not forgetting a swim in the Rio Vero.
