It is a huge limestone mass, towering at the head of the Ordesa Canyon, considered by many to be the most beautiful valley in the Pyrenees. Perdido is a bulky mountain, unimpressive from the south. Its northeast face is more interesting, rising in a series of broad glacial tiers with dramatic rock features.
