From the center of town, we go out by the street called Calle de la Balsa del Tejar (Tejar Ferry St), which is next to the church. We pass the city baths on our right and we continue straight, following the N-II on our left. We enter the Cañada Real, an asphalt road at first and then dirt.
A bridge brings us over the AP-2 or Northeast Highway. Continue parallel to the N-II, which is on our left. After 3.8 km from the bridge, we cross the N-II and continue to walk parallel to it, but now it is on our right. Keep straight ahead, at times going a little away from the N-II, but always in sight of it.
We reach the end of the plateau and Fraga lies before us in the valley of the river Cinca. We have arrived at an abandoned petrol station and are back to the N-II. We continue along the side of the N-II and soon take a road to the left which will bring us away from the N-II. It stays on the plateau, while the N-II goes down to the Cinca valley. Our road divides: take the right, leaving the left next to an electricity tower. The road provides a magnificent view of the valley. Passing a small stone building we again find a fork in the road at the foot of an electricity tower; we take the right, downhill. A yellow arrow on the left reminds us we are still going “against the current”.
We make our way by a sharp descent. Just before we reach the plain, our road ends in another one, which we take to our left. We continue straight on for approximately 200 meters and turn right on another road that starts here and descends to
Fraga. Red and white signs help us to follow the right road, but be careful and do not forget to turn right, because the white and red marks go straight on, which is not the right direction. Our road brings us straight down to Fraga. We reach the highway and turn right. After 100 m we find a roundabout which indicates “N-II to Lerida.” We enter the city on the N-II which becomes the beautiful Avenida (Avenue) de Aragón. Straight ahead and we reach the river Cinca. The Ignatian Way continues past the river in the old quarter, next to City Hall.
