A charming locality situated on the course of the River Caldarés, at 1,200 metres altitude. The area is known for its large stone houses, its steep narrow streets, and pretty side streets. In the summer it is synonymous with rest and a healthy environment.
Surrounded by elegant mountains, dotted with lakes and several peaks over 3,000 metres, Panticosa is the ideal place for all types of mountain sports. And there are some unique routes and activities for visitors to discover.
The church at Panticosa has a Romanesque base from the 13th Century. Its altar is Gothic-Aragonese and dates back to 1480; the imagery in the altarpiece is polychrome alabaster.
Completing the village is the ski station. The slopes are accessed via cable car which leaves from an extensive terrace at the foot of the river. In the summer you can go on a fabulous excursion in the same cable car, which takes visitors to the Asnos and Sabocos lakes and to the natural viewing point at Cerro Cuartale mountain.
