Argenteria stands in the middle of the spectacular Collegats gorge. It's a rocky wall with some springs of water that have shaped odd beautiful forms that have inspired some artists like Joan Maragall or Antoni Gaudí. In the coldest seasons the water sliding down the wall gets frozen forming stunning ice floes.
PLA DE CORTS AND
Pla de Corts is a wavy area halfway between the Pyrenees and the Pre-Pyrenees which is constantly watched over by the Sleeping Giant (Geganta Adormida), a legendary odd mountain.
