Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park (Huesca)

Home to some of the best hiking in the Pyrenees, the park was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997. This is an incredibly beautiful place and one of the most important mountainous areas in Spain, with its deep plunging canyons, dense forests, waterfalls and rivers scattered with Roman bridges, all dominated by the massif of Monte Perdido. See traditional architecture in the villages of Broto and Torla, and enjoy the fantastic fauna this area has to offer such as chamois, marmots, lammergeiers, Griffon vultures and capercaillies. With summits above 3000 metres, the spectacular canyons and the looming Monte Perdido (3355m), this is arguably the most dramatic scenery in Europe.
