Eco Museo

Museum in Aínsa

Housed in a tower of Aínsa's castle, the Eco Museo presents models and information displays on Pyrenean fauna; a few rescued birds of prey in small enclosures; and a film on Pyrenean ecosystems and the importance of conserving them. Also here is the Pyrenean Bird Center, providing information on Pyrenean birds of prey and the best spots to see them, with guided trips in July and August.

The Eco Museo is managed by the Lammergeier Conservation Foundation, whose work has helped the Pyrenean population of the lammergeier (bearded vulture), a majestic bird with a wingspan of up to 2.90m, recover in recent decades from a few dozen to around 200.
