Say goodbye to the heat and try to know the most beautiful natural landscapes of Calatayud.

With the arrival of the summer heat is the time in which many take the opportunity to spend their vacations in a natural environment away from the city, thus avoiding the high temperatures and stress caused by the large agglomerations. The Comarca Comunidad de Calatayud, located to the west of the province of Zaragoza, stands out for having a varied offer of rural tourism, routes and ideal trails for a getaway.

Stone Monastery

This is the perfect starting point for excursions in the area. Although the Stone Monastery can not be considered a hiking route as such, the traveler can travel a unique space dotted with numerous waterfalls and caves that, over the centuries, the River Piedra has been drawing with the passage of its course. The Monasterio de Piedra is one of the most visited destinations in Aragón, and the tour through the Parque-Jardín Histórico is conditioned so that the walker can rest in different points of it, which makes it an ideal excursion for all audiences. The entrance to the site also includes a visit to the Cistercian monastery and a flight display of birds of prey.

Sierra de Armantes

Located between the fertile plain of the rivers Manuables, Ribota and Jalón, in the Sistema Ibérico Zaragozano, this mountain range stands out for the numerous ravines and hills of reddish and white tones that are formed thanks to the plasters, clays and marls that dominate the environment. Of the Sierra de Armantes also stands out the erosive process that has given life to some unique geological formations, the so-called Castles, popularly known as the “Far West”. The circuit can be done walking, cycling or even riding, starting from its spectacular viewpoint.

Sierra de Vicor

It is one of the most interesting natural areas of the Jiloca Valley, since it has a landscape in which the holm oak forests and the extensive pine groves stand out. In turn, we also find groves of oaks or gall oaks, as well as holly groves with serbales, strawberry trees and labiérnagos. The Sierra de Vicor is an excellent scenery for the sighting of forest birds, among which the blue climber, the arboreal pipit and the red-backed shrike stand out. An environment of great plant and animal beauty that, together with the Sierra del Espigar and the Sierra Modorra, separates the valleys of the Grío and Perejiles rivers.

Walk through the sickles of Jalón

During the excursion through the sickles of Jalón it will seem to us that we are walking through an area of high mountain, surrounded by steep ravines and cut. In the rocky areas, where there are hardly any areas of scrubland, important colonies of protected raptors have been established, including griffon vultures, Egyptian vultures, peregrine falcons, royal owls and various types of eagles. Also, at the bottom of the cut, riverside forests and horticultural and fruit areas follow the layout of Jalón.
