Pallars SobiràWhere landscape speaks
Walking across the landscapes of Pallars Sobirà turns into a trip back in time. The craggy peaks of the mountains, the spectacular glacial valleys and the impressing rocky walls are the alive legacy of ancient seas, rivers and deserts. The shapes and colours of the rocks give life to a landscape speaking about the origins of the Pyrenees.
The landscape reflects all the transformations that have happened throughout the years, from the glaciations when the valleys were formed until the more recent times when some hydroelectrical power stations were built. The strength of the water of the rivers have shaped intriguing forms all along their way and agriculture and livestock farming have taken advantage of the most fertile lands since immemorial times to live in a complex and rough territory.
Many places in the region are only accessible by foot and when you get there you can still feel the peace, calm and tranquility of the purest nature. The highest mountains, like Pica d'Estats, the highest summit in Catalonia, become the best viewpoint of a gorgeous landscape that combines past and present.
Come feel the vastness of the landscape!
