The capital of Pallars Sobirà
The Earls of Pallars chose Sort as their place to live and control all their lands and since then the village has expanded underneath the castle, built on the top of a hill from where you can enjoy an extraordinary view of the houses in the village built all along the river Noguera Pallaresa. If you stroll along the streets in the oldest part of the village you will still feel the medieval past but you will also be surprised by the lively atmosphere and the little shops the village has.
Sort is known for its friendly and burstling atmosphere, but the other 14 small villages in the municipality are frozen in time. If you go to any of those villages you will experience the tranquility of traditional mountain villages and nature's beauty, like in Àssua Valley, a part of Aigüestortes and Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, and more protected areas belonging to Alt Pirineu Natural Park.
