The Mallos de 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 Riglos some 45 km to the northwest of the city of Huesca. Rising to some 300 metres high, 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.

  • Spectacular place, great care. Stunning views from anywhere in the Valley and not goes from the foot of the mallos. Totally recommended to climb to the vantage point of vultures to see an overview of the whole and with a bit of luck also see the flight of vultures.

  • It is interesting to walk around near these reddish mountains.
  • Worth a deviation or a stop if on your way.
  • With spectacular hiking route: the way to heaven. 2 hrs-2 hrs. 30' length. Easy but with a strong slope.

  • One of the most beautiful natural sights I've seen in my life. The best of the Aragonese pre-Pyrenees. Place with charm for observing birds of prey, as well as rock climbing and hiking.
