Torla, or Torla-Ordesa, is a municipality in the Aragon region of Spain. Torla is a gateway to the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park in the valley of Ordesa, and to Valle de Broto. It is home to about 300 people (2018).


Torla is in the glacial valley of the River Ara, after the confluence of the valleys of Bujaruelo and Ordesa. The Ara is said to be the only river of any importance in Spain that is not dammed by the human hand throughout its 70-km course to its confluence with the River Cinca in Ainsa.

Looking up from Torla

Get in[edit]

Torla borders France but lacks a road connection with it. It can only be accessed by the N-260 from Broto or from Biescas through the port of Cotefablo (1,423 m). In summer, when access to the valley of Ordesa in Torla is restricted for private vehicles, buses are arranged through the park to climb to the meadow of Ordesa.

There is aminibus with a luggage trailer from Ainsa or Sabiñanino.

Get around[edit]

There are Land Rover trips into the National Park (Ordesa) if you don't want to walk. Cars are not allowed up to the park except in winter but there are regular buses from the large car park below the village and the ticket allows a break to see the Park Centre on the way up.
