Stage 6: Riglos - Loarre

Switch on your camera and get ready to have an unforgettable experience discovering the natural wonders of Sierra de Loarre and its ancient heritage by visiting Loarre Castle and the medieval ensemble of Marcuello. Today we leave Mallos de Riglos to ascend Collado de Santo Román, close to the nearby Mirador de los Buitres and the medieval castle and hermitages of Marcuello, located over the cliffs of Os Fils.

Afterwards, we’ll ascend to one of the most beautiful summits of this range, Peña del Sol (1,287 m), to enjoy its spectacular panoramic views. Then, a gravel road connects with the path that leads to the shelter and hermitage of Santa Marina.

After leaving this beautiful spot, we continue until we reach the extraordinary Loarre Castle, one of the greatest jewels of the ancient Aragonese and Spanish heritage. You’ll never forget. From the Castle, we descend to the beautiful village of Loarre.
