The path starts from  Benasque, on the right hand side, about 50 m. before the Fire station. Soon, bordering some ruins where sat the old Castle of Benasque. In 1592, Philip II ordered the building of this fortress in the defense line established in the Pyrenean valleys to address potential invasions from the border. After passing by the rock with low wall the path goes up by small rocky edges.

From here it follows the line of the old road that ascends to Cerler and that until not long ago, served as communication between Benasque, capital of Valley, and Cerler, the highest population in the Aragonese Pyrenees.

When you reach a viewpoint cross the road to continue ascending along the way, it goes between stone walls and box, go back to the road again.

Walk a few meters. Then take another path that reaches the road again and continue along it until you reach the Old Town of Cerler.
