Penyagolosa – Pyrenees

PANO_penya
First attempt to create a panorama from Penyagolosa peak (1.813 m.), it covers half of Pyrenees range, with some of the most renowned mountains on it.

Since I started to like mountaineering in Pyrenees, seeing this kind of images is looking at all the stories this summits can tell.

El Pueyo – Monte Perdido massif

PueyoPerdido
Near Barbastro village, almost inside the main chain of Pyrenees range, there is an small hill with a Monastery at the top, with an impressive with of central Pyrenees due to its relative height to surrounding areas.

From 603 meters above sea level, and approximately 200 meters above hill bottom, view to Monte Perdido massif is uncovered.

Ranges vary from 65 to 80 km. Monte Perdido is at 71 km. and La Munia is at 76 km.

 El Pueyo – Posets-Maladeta / Cotiella massifs

PanoPueyoAneto

Definitely the BEST place to see the highest peak of Pyrenees range, Aneto at 3.404 meters above sea level, among with several other ultimate summits as Posets (3.371 m.a.s.l.) and Perdiguero (3.222 m.a.s.l.).

View also covers Monte Perdido as seen in the previous entry, so from “El Pueyo” one is able to see almost all mountains from central Pyrenees. A recomended visit to eall mountain lovers.

Distances cover from 56 km. at El Turbón to 86 km. at Pico de la Montaneta, with Aneto being at 83 km. and looking perfectly under morning lights.

Monrepós mountain Pass – Pyrenees

panomonreposFrom the last relevant mountain pass at 1.262 m.a.s.l. before entering Pyrenees the view covers almost all peaks inside Aragón province, except from Aneto peak.

The view covers from 40 km. at Peña Collarada to 75 km. at Posets peak.

Monrepós mountain pass has historically been a difficult problem to solve and connect Spain mainland to the North, and will in the future be a key part of the connection between Spain and France through A-23 highway.
