Desfiladero de la Inclusa

Tucked away in the Sobrarbe comarca, in the northeastern part of the country, the road through the canyon is not easy. It’s called A-2609. It’s totally impassable for 2 cars at the same time for its whole length. Proceed cautiously and hope no other vehicles come from the other direction. Not recommended if you don't know how to reverse.

Built in the 1960’s, the drive deems too dangerous due to rock falls. The road runs along the Cinqueta river. It’s totally paved but full of potholes. It’s a quiet road without traffic except that of a few cyclists and bikers on their days off. The passengers really enjoy the scenery but the driver must remain concentrated on the road. This is a remarkable road trip. Remember to bring your camera.

Set high in the Pirineo mountain range, within the Gistáin Valley, the road is 12.1 km (7.51 miles) long, running west-east from Salinas to Plan. It’s especially dangerous after rains.
