Cerler (Sarllé in Aragonese) is a small town in the municipality of Benasque considered the highest village in the Aragonese Pyrenees located at 1,540 meters high.
It consists of a small perfectly preserved old town with several apartment blocks and hotels which extends to the base of the ski Cerler. Winter tourism and summer, rural tourism and catering are the economic foundation of the town.
Cerler preserves the flavor of the typical villages of the Valley. Despite the proximity of a large resort, the town has preserved its historic beauty. It has numerous noble houses of the sixteenth century and some buildings of earlier times.
Today there is a good road that goes from Benasque, but until the early twentieth century to access Cerler, the founders of the ski resort had to walk up from the valley floor and must spend the night in the village houses. It lacked, among other things, medical service, and if necessary, the sick were transported by mules to Benasque. The trip could last half hour.
At present, a road goes to the ski area and the high mountain barracks of the army. The village has all the facilities and amenities for tourism, welcoming thousands of visitors every year.
