  • Very nice mountain and river sheep. Well signposted. Very nice stone bridge. Two campsites.

  • Must see if you are in the area. There are several hiking trails that depart from the bridge. We did a 50-minute walk. Circular route that departs and ends on the bridge. The brave can take a "very refreshing" bath that they will remember for a long time. In my case, I didn't get past my knees.

  • The Valley of Bujaruelo, by which the River Ara runs, is next to the Valley of Ordesa although (in an incomprehensible way) outside the limits of the National Park of Ordesa and Monte Perdido. And I consider it incomprehensible because it encloses as many natural and aesthetic values as other valleys included in the Park. It is true that this whole environment has so much beauty that there are many corners that long ago should enjoy the utmost protection. A Bujaruelo is accessed by a track that goes to the left of access to the Ordesa Valley, turning in the hut of the guards. The first section forms a rather narrow throat that is widening to a little. Through a first bridge you cross to the right bank of the Ara River. From this point, to the right looking downstream, you can see the beautiful Waterfall of the Goldfish, which when low caudalosa makes a slide effect, projecting the stream forward. On the way up, immediately before crossing the bridge, leaves an interesting path that takes in an hour and a half or so to San Nicolás de Bujaruelo, where the second campsite is locked. The Whole path takes place in Umbria, making it ideal for summer. Following the trail, you pass near the hermitage of Santa Helena and another interesting waterfall. Later you leave to the left the camping Bujaruelo, which has a couple of very well located bungalows, and within 3 kilometers you will reach the Campsite and Refuge of San Nicolás, where the track dies. The shelter is very nice and eats pretty well. It's Not open all year. The track to here is not asphalted in its entirety and, although something rugged depending on rainfall and impracticable with snow, the cars usually go to the end, driving with caution. Insist on respecting the speed limit for safety and avoiding threats to wildlife, pedestrians and bicycles. Please respect them. In Addition, drivers will enjoy the scenery. From San Nicolás you have to keep walking on either of the two banks of the Ara River. The Right bank is covered by a restricted track and left by a very nice and sunny path. The path is accessed through a beautiful Romanesque bridge. When Crossing the bridge, we are left to the right the end of the path that started from the first bridge (you can also go downwards). From the front, a fairly steep path goes up to the Port of Bujaruelo and the French border (an ancient route of communication with France). And to the left part the, path that crosses the edge of the Ara. This part of the bottom of the valley is occupied by long Meadows ("Fenales") interrupted by a sort of compact hedges where they mix their very high foliages bogies, Holly, yew and rowans of hunters. At the end, the trail and the track converge on the Bridge of Oncins, which dominates a beautiful pool of emerald waters. At this confluence, closer to the track, the Fountain of the Femalla is locked, with an icy and very rich water from this area, and looking upstream, part to the right a track towards in Valle de Ordiso (different from Ordesa) and to the left another towards the Valley of Otal. Both rides are beautiful. Personally, I have a weakness for Otal but, as I say, it's a personal taste. I'M sure you enjoy a lot of both tours. And I don't follow, because it would be talking about other valleys, and today we talk about Bujaruelo. Filled with beauty for these payments!
