Gavin

Just outside Biescas on the way to Ara and Ordesa is the pretty little village of Gavín at an altitude of 974 metres.  The village was almost totally destroyed during the Civil War but has been rebuilt and still has all the hallmarks of a traditional mountain town.

Nearby the hermitage of San Bartolomé can be seen.  It dates back to the end of the 10th century.  The tower has metal arches on the windows with rosettes and masonry that make it one of the most important examples of Serrablo Art.

The local festival is on the 24th of august and there is a pilgrimage to the hermitage where people are offered cake and wine.
