Pallars SobiràCatalonia's green lung
Trees, shrubs, bushes and flowers cover almost every piece of land in Pallars Sobirà. The many protected areas with a huge ecological value make the region the greatest green lung in Catalonia.
The valleys are full of green meadows and shady forests along the rivers, becoming the best place to beat the heat in summer and enjoy a variety of colours in autumn. The slopes of the mountains are covered in the intense green colour of holm oaks, oaks and pines, whose roots hold on to the rocky soils.
Fir and beech forests are lit by weak beams of lights trying to make their way through the high thick branches and this creates a magical atmosphere where you can only hear the sound of water streams and birds. High mountain open areas are covered in bright green pastures once the snow has melted and flocks of cows, sheep and horses come to them to find fresh grass.
Come take a deep breath!
