Come and visit the Valle del Tena and the history of the Aragonese Pyrenees through this via ferrata that passes through different historical buildings and monuments!

The path is located in the territory of the municipality of Biescas, a village of 1,470 inhabitants on the banks of the Gallego River, 72km from Huesca (Zaragoza: 140km) that constitutes the main entrance to the Valle del Tena in the Pyrenees of Huesca.

The activity that we propose is an original way to visit the water source and the hermitage of Santa Elena, work of the seventeenth century, and the fort of Santa Elena, built in the time of Felipe II. During your tour you will also be able to observe different vestiges of the Civil War, like bunkers and trenches.


The via ferrata or "iron road" is a vertical and horizontal itinerary equipped with different material, such as chains or pegs, that allow access to areas of difficult access for hikers. The safety is borne by a steel cable installed throughout the route and the harness equipped with a power dissipator and safety carabiners. This path is accessible to anyone, being an ideal activity to do as a family with the little ones.

The activity will be directed by a guide who will advise and explain you the curiosities of the place along the route.

The path starts near the Dolmen of the Santa Elena car park, a monument that you can visit through its route. Once there, you will move along a footpath to the via ferrata that ends at the top of the mountain. Before going down, you will have the opportunity to visit the hermitage and the fort of Santa Elena. On the return path you will find a waterfall with a cave inside, which you can visit if not much water falls.

Take advantage and starts with this beautiful via ferrata!
