Access and way-marked routes
El Fraile
4,6 km (go and back). Gradient: 200 m.

A walk that takes us up to the Fraile hill, located in the southernmost extreme of the Bardenas. It is located in one of the most desert-like and forgotten spots. Remains of an old fort at the top. Incredible panoramic view.


Start point: the Bea Corral. To reach the corral take the Tudela-Tauste road (N!-126, km 22). Just before reaching the Aragón border a well surfaced track branches off. Following the track for 4,3 km takes us to the corral (signposted).

From the clearing next to the corral, we set off heading west, skirting round the fields (don't enter sown fields). The outstanding silhouette of the Fraile is visible at all times. At the beginning there is no defined track, but there are numerous cattle trails. After crossing ridges and ravines, we come to an old track which has suffered erosive deterioration that rises up to some old, abandoned crop fields. From here the final rise is evident. The same route is taken for the return journey.
