Take the Scenic Route and Discover Congosto De Las Devotas
Congosto De Las Devotas is a very scenic canyon located in the province of Huesca, in Aragon, an autonomous community of Spain. It’s one of the most scenic canyon roads of Spain.
Tucked away on the northern part of the country, the gorges were carved by the Cinca River. The scenic road through the canyon is totally paved in very good conditions, but features narrow parts. It’s called Carretera Aragonesa (A-138). The road was built to avoid the dangerous Las Devotas pass.
The road is 35.1 km (21.81 miles) long, running south-north from Escalona to the border of France, on the Bielsa-Aragnouet international high mountain tunnel. Set high in the Chistau and Bielsa-Pineta valleys, the drive offers stunning views. To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 45 and 60 minutes. The road features a high risk of rock slides and can be closed after heavy rains. It is the starting point to conquer the challenging Pista de Ruego, the highest road of the Pyrenees, at 2.580m (8,464ft) above the sea level,
