Map

Banastón Usana is a 5 minute drive from Ainsa or a half hour walk along a waymarked path. Ainsa is the main village in the region of Sobrarbe, and there you will find all the sports adventure companies, restaurants, bars, banks, supermarkets, tourist office and the weekly outdoor fruit and veg market on Tuesday morning. Ainsa is located at the crossroads to three areas of outstanding nature beauty: the Ordesa National Park home to Monte Perdido the largest limestone mountain in Europe, the Posets-Maladeta Natural Park, entry via the magnificent Chistau valley and the Sierra de Guara Natural Park, world renown for its canyoning. All three parks offer an endless array of outdoor activites from one hour strolls along the valley floor to 3000m+ peaks like Posets and Perdido. Alpine wildflowers can be enjoyed all summer long, though May and June are truly spectacular months. There are good chances of spotting marmots, deer, 'sarrios' Pyrenean mountain goats, vultures, lammergeier...

Other Activities: Caving, canyoning, rafting, kayak, canoe
