A scenic drive through the narrow Congosto de Ventamillo
Located in the county of Ribagorza, in the province of Huesca, Aragon, in northern Spain, Congosto de Ventamillo is a limestone canyon. It’s one of the most scenic canyon roads of Spain.
The road through the scenic rocky gorge is called N-260 (A-139). It’s paved and pretty narrow in parts. The gorge is a highlight of the southern Pyrenees. The canyon formed by river Ésera makes up the main entrance by car to Benasque valley. Located in the Ribagorza comarca, the road is 6.7 km long and runs from the village of Seira towards Castejón de Sos. Risk of rock slides.
2021 Update: The road is currently being completely updated and "improved". That is why the road is closed for large parts of the week or sometimes on weekends. The situation can change overnight as there have been some incidents of falling rocks and blocked by rocks also while at the same time being worked on.
