La Negra - Sancho Abarca

37 km. Gradient: 330 m


This route, as well as passing through the Plana de la Negra, also takes us to the Sancho Abarca Sanctuary. The sanctuary is a surprising place located on Aragonese soil overlooking the extense pine groves of the Negra (weekend bar and services available at the sanctuary).


Start point: the NA-125 from Tudela-Ejea de los Caballeros, kilometric point 17.3

The first part of this route coincides with route nº 6 (see description) heading up a steep slope as far as the Plana de La Negra. From this point we follow the main track around the edge of the mesa-shaped high, first in the north then in the east. To one side are the cultivated areas of the Plana (on Bardena soil) and on the other are the beautiful slope-covering groves of aleppo pine (virtually all on Aragonese soil). All this stretch is especially pleasant, due to its almost flat profile, its landscape and natural environment. Approaching our destination, the track heads into land belonging to Tauste (Zaragoza) before a final uphill stretch takes us up to the Sanctuary. The same route is taken for the return journey.
