Detail Comarca Alto Gallego

It is a clear example that the county division is not unalterable. The Bal de Tena, the last of the western valleys of the Aragonese Pyrenees, has historically been part of the Chazetania, due to its belonging to the original nucleus of the county of Aragon.

The district of the High Galligo or Sarrablo is located north of the province of Uesca, occupying almost the entire basin of the upper course of the Galligo River.

Bordered by France, it communicates with Collet del Portalet, located at an altitude of 1,792 meters. To the south, its delimitation coincides with that of the Sarrablo, the Aineto and Belarre mountain ranges.

The extension of the region is of 1,351 km² and it includes the municipal terms of eight city councils, nevertheless, the poblamiento is very dispersed. There are 84 inhabited urban nuclei, even if temporarily. Of these, 49 belong to Samianigo. The Bal de Tena presents a better demographic structure than the Sarrablo since the growth of mountain tourism and skiing practices has contributed to slow the emigration and fix the population in this valley.

The eight municipalities of the region are integrated into the community of Alto Gállego which also includes the municipality of Torla belonging to Sobrarbe. The headquarters is in Samianigo.

Note: the description text of the region has been extracted from the magazine "L'Ausin".
