From Jaca you drive to the village of Puente la Reina on the main N-260 national road. they are building a motorway, but as a national road-it links Jaca with Pamplona-it's a disgrace. Puente la Reina, as the name says has a bridge which crosses the river Aragón, after which you turn right and drive next to the river Subordan, a tributary of the Aragón. Past Javierregay, Embún and round the edge of Hecho. Past Siresa with its spectacular Romanesque church-all that's left of the monastery that once housed 150 monks. Here the road gets narrower, you drive through a quite narrow ravine called Hell's Mouth- la Boca del Infierno and into the area of the Selva de Oza. In the past 20 years Oza has come along! It was an area with two derelict campsites and some empty buildings with spectacular scenery and now the campsites have reopened, freshly painted and refurbished; there's a café-restaurant, a restaurant, an adventure playground with wires running from tree to tree as well as spectacular scenery.
We had a lovely walk along the steep gorge side on a warm autumn morning. Here are a few photos:
On the way back we stopped in Hecho and had a rather expensive but exquisite meal in a restaurant called Cantere. Lovely, very fine food.
