How to get there: Drive on the A-138 to the kilometer post K64 and turn on a narrow asphalt road signposted to "Tella", "Ruta de las Ermitas", "Garganta de Escuaín" and "Miradores de Revilla". After 5.7 km you come to a fork. Continue to the right for "Tella" and "Ruta de las Ermitas". Drive 2.7 km more to the village of Tella. (Roadmap)

Distance: 40min/2.8km

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 to the mountains of Añisclo, Las Tres Marías and Sierra de Revilla bordering the valley of Escuaín. 

The path bends right and emerges in a pine forest. When you encounter a sign (12min) (1350 m) fork off right to the first hermitage (14 min). The Ermita de los Santos Juan y Pablo was built in 1018 to the slope of the Puntón de las Brujas. You can go inside to this charming two storey building. Upstairs the light falls on 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.

Return to the path and walk to a crossroads (21min) (1385 m). On your right towers the Ermita de la Virgen de la Peña and on your left Ermita de la Virgen de Fajanillas. Climb first to the Ermita de la Virgen de la Peña (24min) (1405 m) located on a cliff encircled by mountains. From the cliff you see the valley and the canyon of Escuaín in their full lenght. This hermitage was built in the 16th century. The building and its original Virgin suffered severe damages during the civil war, but since then it has been renovated and gotten a new Virgin.

Return to the crossroads and visit the Ermita de la Virgen de Fajanillas (28min) (1390 m). You find a Virgin also in this hermitage built in the 1200th century. From the yard you enjoy views over the village of Tella and to the mountain of  Castillo Mayor.

Return to the crossroads and turn left towards Tella. When you reach the village (36min) (1330 m) you continue along a lane back to the church (40min).
