|At the corner of the church of San Martín (1335 m)
you find a sign for "Circuito Ermitas" that points to a path.
The gently ascending path opens up almost immediately a fantastic view

The path bends right and emerges in a pine forest. When you encounter

the Virgin and the shrine. From the slope you enjoy good views to the
valleys of Escuaín and Cinca and to the mountains of Castillo Mayor.
All hermitages of this route have an information panel on their history.
