Barbastro - Ilche - Pomar de Cinca - Albalate de Cinca - Monzón - Barbastro
This relatively flat path takes us from Barbastro and crosses various villages in the southern part of Somontano, such as Fornillos, Ilche and Permisán. It then heads on to the neighbouring region of Cinca Medio. After the town of Selgua, the path continues parallel to the Cinca riverbed, a river that gives name to many surrounding villages: Pomar de Cinca, Estiche de Cinca, Alcolea de Cinca and Albalate de Cinca. The landscape, characterised by irrigated cultivations is practically flat and dotted with land reliefs with flat tops called “muelas” and smaller ones called “cerros testigo”. The path continues on towards Alfántega, Pueyo de Santa Cruz and Monzón whose urban centre is dominated by its magnificent Templar castle. From here the path heads back to Barbastro passing Castejón del Puente, an important communication hub from long ago.
