Self-guided trekking routes “Destination Murillo”

“Destination Murillo” is a programme of linear self-guided walks designed for you to get to know the Reino de los Mallos region on foot. Our aim is to make it easy for you! We will take you to the start of each walk so you don’t need to stick to circular walks or worry about your vehicle. We have selected seven routes, each between 15 and 20 km, which traverse the most emblematic parts of the Reino de los Mallos and often take you along the ancient paths connecting villages. And you can follow the route on your GPS!

You’ll walk along the Banks of the River Gállego, tread medieval and Roman roads, trudge the paths of the navvies who built the railway for the “Canfranero” (train to Canfranc), go through spectacular landscapes such as the Escalete and Salinas Gorges, the Mallos (gigantic rock formations) of Agüero, Riglos and Murillo, Punta Común mountain and the abandoned village of “Salinos Viejo”.

You choose your pace: rambling, Nordic walking or trail running. You’re sure to come back for more as walking is such a joy!
