Sobrepuerto in three days
The Sobrepuerto is a small territory between the regions of Sobrarbe and Alto Gállego, in the Pyrenees of Huesca.
It is a territorial entity in itself, so different, so distant, so close.
A place where time stood still for years, with depopulation, and since it beats at different rates.
Almost no people goes around there but the cowherd in summer and some avid travelers.
We will hike through places that we will not leave you indifferent.
While we settle the camp, the group and one of our guides will take a walk through the several hermitages from the XV-XVI centuries.
The path ends in San Cornelio, a magical place where a waterfall crosses the Romanesque walls, giving a beauty to the place that can not be seen anywhere else.
Then we come back and visit a couple of lookouts with spectacular views over the basin east of Jaca and to the north of the 3.000m Pyrenean mountains.
Once in the camp we will talk about the days ahead and protocols to be followed during the trip.
Duration: 5 hours approx.
After the sunshine, we come back to the camp and have a great breakfast, then we will pack the mules and start to the top of the hill that gives us a good sights of the Ainielle's village.
We will get something to eat near the Cross Basarán, crossroads of Sobrepuerto.
While we set up the camp, it is well worth to take a walk and get lost in the wild and deserted streets of Ainielle and remember the novel by Julio Llamazares.
Duration: 6 hours approx.
Escartín is a beautiful abandoned village that has so many histories to tell us, from the small school to the old house's walls.
We will lunch here and then walk down to Bergua.
We will refresh, or bathe in the clear waters of the river Forcos to finally get to Bergua and, by car, to Yebra de Basa, the starting point of the route and where the cars are. We will get there around 17:00.
