The Middle Aran begins in this village, presided over by a Romanesque church with bell tower from the 17th century. It is located at the point where the rivers Joeu and Garona join. Its spring is called ‘Uelhs deth Joeu’. It is an exceptional geological phenomenon with waters coming down from the Aneto glacier. In addition, it is the staring point for one of the most beautiful excursions in the Valley, the Artiga de Lin. Its annual feast (romeria) is held every 3rd Sunday of July. The ‘Camin Reiau’, which was an imporant path for seasonal migration in the past, crosses through Es Bordes. Along the path you will find a wash fountain which is an authentic jewel of the Aranese civil architecture.
