Stage 4. El Pont de Suert – Aínsa

Stage surprise. We avoid the classic options and perform a southern route through the mountains of the pre-Pyrenees with surprising sections: steep slopes, broken roads, dirty sections and a short link through a unpaved section. Lonely and unknown mountain passes of San Salvador, Fantova, Coronas and Torrelisa. Hard stage, especially in hot weather. We leave the Catalan Pyrenees, crossing the valley of Boi, and we enter the Aragonese Pyrenees. Exceptional views of Peña Montañesa and spectacular arrival  at Aínsa.
