The Mallos de Riglos (English: Mallets of Riglos) are a set of conglomerate rock formations, located in the municipality of Las Peñas de Riglos, in the Hoya de Huesca comarca, in Aragon, Spain. They are located near Las Peñas de Riglos some 45 km (28 mi) to the northwest of the city of Huesca. Rising to some 300 metres (980 ft) high (c. 1000 metres or 3,300 ft (1,000 m) above sea level), they form part of the foothills of the Pyrenees.
The Mallos were formed when eroded material washed down from the slopes of the Pyrenees and became cemented together by limestone. Over time, this mixture became compacted into a large mass of conglomerate rock. Eventually, erosion wore away the softer, more porous parts of the conglomerate. The more resistant rock remained, and became the formations known as the Mallos de Riglos.
Because of their relatively vertical sides, the Mallos de Riglos are a popular destination for climbers.

  • Magnificent rocks, take a signrd walk around.
  • Beautiful area, lots of well equipped multi pitch routes
  • It's a spectacular natural rock formation which is well worth a photo opportunity. You can drive close to the foot of the rocks at the back of the village or you can take the road towards Loarre and turn off for Sarsmarcuello for the Mirador de Los Buitres. This viewpoint is from above and gives you the chance to see circling vultures and other birds of prey with the rocks as a backdrop. Warning the road turns to gravel after the village.
  • It is interesting to walk around near these reddish mountains.
  • Visit Them and a while ago a place worth visiting imposing a although you have to go with a little care for the landslides but worth visiting and more if you're a person you like climbing because you have good ways. But better pick up information before you start climbing
