Other Site Characteristics

El río Aguas Limpias es el primer afluente del Gállego por su margen izquierda. Nace en el circo de Piedrafita, en una zona granítica paleozoica de relieve agreste, con varios picos que sobrepasan los 3.000 m. de altitud. El Balaitus, que es el de mayor altitud de todos ellos (3.146 m.) es el "tres mil" más occidental de la cordillera pirenaica. Junto con el batolito de granito, alternan las calizas marinas masivas de antigüedad devónica y carbonífiera. Zona de intenso modelado glaciar. Multitud de ibones, que alimentan el caudal de río.

4.2 Quality and importance

Abundancia de flora endémica, tanto pirenaica como cantabro pirenaica, de óptimo alpino y subalpino.
