  • Drove to the top with tour guide who spoke English and gave us a tour of the church and hermitage. The area is kept locked, so it is very important to have a guide, or you cannot access the area...  more »

  • Totally recommended An Ideal place, with a perfect guide... The bad thing that access is complicated. You Have to drive up to a certain point and then continue on foot. There are possibilities of getting lost by car and not knowing exactly which way to take and not knowing either which is the point where you have to leave the car and continue on foot. It is also easy to once left the car and do the last stretch on foot you can miss by catching some road that is not correct. Otherwise very good visit. A recommended place to visit. If not with guide (the schedule of visits is reduced), also the place is worth to see it for free, although the interior of the buildings will be closed.

  • We stayed without seeing it, because it was only open the resort on weekend.... The access is by forest track more or less good for tourism, the last ascent is made walking by a path that they were conditioning. The setting and views for me of 5 stars, but as I said, was the resort closed during the week, a shame

  • Spectacular views of the Hoya de Huesca. And the hermitage is a surprise, Baroque style. The climb is simple and suitable for children, even 3-4 years old. In spring-summer it opens on weekends in the morning and there is a guided visit. Otherwise, it's closed, so it's good to check before the climb.

  • It is a unique and surprising enclave in the small town of Anies. You can reach with the car to the beginning of a steep but short climb up the wall on which the hermitage is located. You can also get there by walking along the track from the village. The climb is simple but requires good footwear
