Ésera does not understand droughts

Today, in La Vanguardia Readers' Photos, I would like to show some photographs taken in Graus, in the Ribagorza region, in Huesca. In these images we can see how the Magdalena or Abajo bridge rises over the waters of the Ésera river.

Waters that, as we can see, almost touch the highest part of one of the arches. And, between the rains of recent days and the thaw, this part of the river is in top shape.

It is a river that even floods the banks, near the national highway in some points. And not only the Ésera is in good shape, because the Barasona reservoir is located a few meters away and today it is at a capacity of 97%.

Without a doubt, magnificent news for a beautiful 16th century bridge. Although, also, an image that is impressive to see and even more so, when there are other areas with so much drought.

Graus is located at the confluence of the Ésera and Isábena rivers, as well as the Risal ravine, a short distance upstream from the Joaquín Costa reservoir, also called Barasona after the town that was buried under its waters.
