Ansó and the Vultures of Foz de Arbaiun

A gallery of pictures from the little village Ansó – isolated for many years, but rather recently opened up to the world.

On our way back to our hotel, we passed Foz de Arbaiun, a narrow gorge made by the river Salazar, 400 m down. As usual, click to enlarge. (Sometimes needed twice)

On the cliff sides, many vultures have found their homes. We saw at least a dozen coming in. Here they are free to live – nobody can touch them.
Unfortunately we had not brought any pair of binoculars – but the flight of the majestic vultures was still great to watch.  We did not see any of the other species.

  1. Beautiful place! I love to discover this little gems in Europe. Even though me grandparents come from Northern Spain, I have not yet visited this part of the country. It looks perfect for a trip by car.
    Cheers!

  2. Great collection of photographs from the area. The perspective from the gorge is magnificent, especially the one with the vulture (big wing span). Looks like caves built into the sides of the gorge.

    • I agree about the caves, but I think they are natural. The vultures liked them and the one sitting in the picture also had a mate in there.
