Around the Aran Valley


The Aran Valley borders on the Pallars Sobirá region (Lleida) at East. It is an area full of mountains and here we can find the highest peak in Catalunya, Pica d'Estats (3143m). Most of the National Park of Aigüestortes surface and Lake San Mauricio are located in this region. It also keeps valuable pre-Romanesque and Romanesque heritage.

It borders on the French Department Haute Garonne at Norht, which offers 4 sky resorts: Mourtis (the closest one), Luchon Superbagnères, Peyragudes and Bourg d'Oueil.

To the Southwest we find the Ribagorza Aragonese region (Huesca). The Benasque Valley is part of this region and the highest peak in the Pyrenees, Aneto (3404m) is located here.

Finally, the Southernmost region is Alta Ribagorza (Lleida). The highest peak here is Comaloformo (3030m) situated within the Bessiberri mountain range, while in the Bohí Valley we find some Romanesque churches from the 12th century which were declared Unesco World Heritage in the year 2000.
