The 5 unmissable sites
Boumort natural reserve
Have you explored Boumort Reserve yet?
Time seems to have stopped in that dry and steep spot. Getting into Boumort is getting into an inhospitable area that hosts many wild animals that freely stroll through the remains of ancient troglodyte villages that will take you to ancestral times.
Would you like to feel inspired at the Argenteria?
Located in the heart of Collegats Canyon, the Argenteria is a wonderful rock wall that has been carved by water and whose singular twisted shapes inspired some artists such as Joan Maragall and Antoni Gaudí. In the cold season, when the water that glides on the wall gets frozen, a wonderful show of icicles begins.
Corts plain and Montcortès lake
Fancy getting away on Corts Plain?
Corts Plain is an area of wavy landscapes located between the Pyrenees and Pre-Pyrenees, under the shape of the legendary mountain of the Sleeping Giant. That magic area hosts the peaceful waters of Montcortès Lake, which spring up from the underground and create a pleasant atmosphere of peace.
Àssua and Batlliu valleys
What about walking in a world of novels?
The vastness of the landscape and the greenness of the luxuriant grasslands have turned this place into a real inspiring paradise of shepherds’ tales and writers’ stories. Strolling through the paths of Àssua and Batlliu valleys is like travelling through literature.
Have you taken a panoramic picture from the top of Bonaigua yet?
