Located in the highest point of the Sierra of Torón, this place offers spectacular panoramic views that will leave nobody indifferent. The best time is during the sunset, and if the sky is clear you will enjoy incomparable views of the Somontano and Sobrarbe regions, the reservoirs of El Grado and Mediano, of Valle de la Fueva and the Aragonese Pyrenees and some of its most emblematic peaks such as Monteperdido, Posets, Cotiella, Espadas or the unique Peña Montañesa, without forgetting the Sierra de la Carrodilla and its Buñero on the other side.

As for how to complete the route, that is up to you, since there are several routes and all of them can be done in various ways: either mountain biking, hiking, trail running… Besides this, you can also have a well-deserved recovery picnic, lunch or snack once in the top (there are tables).

Every year on Second Easter, the residents of Secastilla and other villages in the area carry out a pilgrimage there, which is quite an event. This year, because it coincides with the Spanish regional elections, it will be held on Saturday, May 27.
