The park

What is Lacuniacha?

Lacuniacha is a “bio-park” of 30 hectares where we can find a representation of both species of flora and fauna that lived or live sometime in the Pyrenees.

It is located in the Tena Valley, in the heart of the Aragonese Pyrenees in the small town of Piedrafita of Jaca.

All animals living in the park were born in captivity, come from recovery centers or have been rescued from places where they did not received the necessary care for their welfare.

Lacuniacha does not want to become a barrier to animals living freely around the park; for this reason, the fences that enclose the park grounds are prepared for the native fauna can enter and leave the park without problems. In that way, the visitors can enjoy squirrels, tops, birds and other animals living freely in the vicinity of the park.

During the course of 4km and a half mountain trail, visitors can enjoy a pleasant walk where you can observe about 120 individuals from 15 different species living in Lacuniacha.

Lacuniacha is located in the ancient forest of “La Pinosa” a natural setting not influenced by human presence.
