Mallos de Riglos

Mallos de Riglos | Unknown Europe | Scoop.it
See from a afar, from the little tarmac track which leads from the A-132, Riglos is one the best postcard views of the Aragon Pyrenees. The small village appears suddenly, limed and silent, with hardly any element which spoils this mountain village, at the foot of the gigantic rocks which make the village seem small.

Totally vertical mythical walls which appear to release fire when the sun hits them, Riglos is the historic capital of mountaineering in Spain. On its walls of cemented gravel, product of the erosion of the glacial moraines which came down the Pyrenees, entire generations of climbers have been trained and hardened, like the famous RabadĂĄ and Navarro, who died on the north wall of the Eiger (Swiss Alps) in 1963, to whom there is a monument dedicated at the entrance of the village.

The rivalry between Catalan and Aragonese climbers was also epic to get to the top of the famous rocky needle of Puro, the last summit in the Mallos to be conquered. Finally, it was the Aragonese, who in 1957, equipped with hemp shoes and rudimentary ropes, achieved it.

In its vertical walls, one of the biggest colonies of griffon vultures in all of Spain, nests. You don’t have to be a climber to enjoy this superb scenery: a circular track goes round all of the base of the Mallos, and permits you to get to know what this unique territory is like, in which there are also a lot of the other formations typical of the county, gorges or canyons excavated from the limestone walls . The peacefulness of Riglos, a small hamlet of 66 inhabitants, contrasts with the continual coming and going of climbers of all types and ages, dressed in colourful clothes, ropes, pitons and clasps. Facing los Mallos, still in the province of Zaragoza, is Murillo de Gállego, the water sports capital of Alto Aragón, where you can practice rafting and other white water sports in the Gállego River.

Madera, I love! - Gotuje, bo lubi | Unknown Europe | Scoop.it
Choć słowo sezon nie jest kluczowym dla Madery,  to nie da się nie zauważyć, że w kolacyjnej godzinie szczytu goście hotelowej restauracji mieszczą się na jednej trzeciej jej powierzchni. Madera, nazywana wyspą wiecznej wiosny, to miejsce o względnie stałej temperaturze, która w przeciągu roku waha się pomiędzy 17 – 22 stopni. Złośliwi twierdzą, że niemieccy emeryci przyjeżdżają tam latem aby się chłodzić, zimą …

22 Amazing Places to Visit in France (Part 2)
by Merry on January 14, 2014

France is oh-so beautiful I had to do TWO posts on all the amazing places to visit in France (check out the first 22 Amazing Places to Visit in France). Hope you love these places as much as I do and let me know in the comments where you would most like to go in France!

1. The Loire Valley, Indre-et-Loire. Home to dozens of gorgeous Châteaux, vineyards, fruit orchards, and artichoke and asparagus fields. It is often referred to as the Garden of France.

                                                    Château de Chambord




                                                    Château de Villandry

2. Cantal, Auvergne. A group of extinct volcanic peaks cover much of the region. Come here to immerse yourself in glorious, untouched nature.

3. Château de Pierrefonds, Oise. The chateau looks like a fairytale in the snow. It’s also on the edge of the Forest of Compiègne. I like to think this is where Beauty and the Beast could have taken place.                                            The castle on the inside

4. Étretat, Haute-Normandie. Best known for its gorgeous cliffs, it’s easy to see why artists Claude Monet, Gustave Courbet, and Eugène Boudin were drawn here.
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaA painting of Étretat by Monet


5. The gardens of the Château de Marqueyssac, Dordogne. There’s a Château here, too, but the real draw here are the gardens. The photo pretty much says it all.

6. Le Palais Idéal, Hauterives, Drôme. A French postman spent 33 years building this extraordinary example of so-called “naieve art” architecture. It’s so strangely wonderful.
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaFerdinand’s massoleum

7. Plage de Saleccia, Corsica (French island in the Mediterranean). A mile-long desert island dream of white sand and tropical turquoise water. Unless you’ve got a yacht, you have to walk across a desert to get here.


aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaThe beach is so wild even cows hang out here.
                                          A view from a different beach in Corsica. 

8. Amiens Cathedral, Picardy. This is the tallest complete cathedral in France. The original colors of the cathedral are shown with projected light (such as in the second picture, below) at the Son et lumière shows.

9. Château de Monte-Cristo and Alexander Dumas’ cottage, Marly-le-Roi, Île-de-France. In the western suburbs of Paris lies an adorable cottage where Dumas once lived. The entire property is a museum memorializing Dumas.                                                  The main building

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAlexandre Dumas’ Cottage

10. Château de Vincennes. A massive 14th and 17th century royal castle in the suburbs of Paris. It’s also easily accessible at the end of line 1 of the Paris métro.

11. Nimes, Languedoc-Roussillion. This town dates back to the Roman Empire and unlike the coliseum in Rome, you can actually see bullfighting and concerts in the Roman amphitheater here.

12. Champagne. There are fields upon fields of alcohol. It’s so scrumptiously pretty.


13. Toulousse, Haute-Garonne. The fourth-largest metropolis after Paris, Lyon, and Marseille. Home to the Galerie du Château d’eau, one of the oldest places dedicated to photography in the world.


14. Dune of Pilat, Arachon Bay. The tallest sand dune in Europe, it’s a famous tourist destination with more than one million visitors per year.

15. Menton, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. On the French Riviera and along the Franco-Italian border, Menton is nicknamed la perle de la France (“The Pearl of France”).

16. Carcassonne, Aude. A fortified French town known for its fortress, which has a fascinating folk etymology involving a châtelaine named Carcas. Its turrets and ramparts are so perfect they belong in a fairytale.

17. Beaune, Burgundy, Côte, d’Or. The wine capital of Burgundy. The annual wine auction of the Hospices de Beaune is the primary wine auction of France. Winos will delight in all here!
                                               Les Hospices de Beaune

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaThe Patriache Cellars

18. Annecy, The Alps. Known as the “Venice of Savoie,” Annecy is built around a 14th century Château and the whole town is interspersed with small canals. It also has a backdrop of snowy mountains, making it one of the most photogenic towns in France.
