North of the culd are almost an extension of the Aran lands, after going through the natural obstacles of the Port of Bonaigua and foothills of Aigüestortes National Park and San Maurici Lake . We are in the Natural Park of High Pyrenees , beautifying our own landscapes of the catalan Pyrenees. Continuity in the landscape and its Pyrenean character make these valleys a special place to discover on foot or by other means.
In this historical and natural context, the Valls d’Àneu show us an important monumental ensemble, integrated in each town, witness of an unalterable legacy: the Romanesque.
Just like other neighboring counties, Pallars Sobirà preserves the Romanesque footprint in its churches, which are still alive thanks to the prevailing poverty of its moment; Exempt from any evolution in the architectural style and leaving clear samples from the south to the skirt of the Aran valley.
We find a whole variety of celebrations deeply rooted in the traditional and popular culture of the Valls d’Àneu. The Carnival and the Calderada, the procession of the Jews for Easter, the Easter Caramelles, the gathering of Santa Maria the first of May, the « Neighbors » of Esterri d’Àneu, the Falles d’Isil (declared Traditional Fiesta of National Interest in Catalonia), the Teatre festival « Esbaiola’t » and the Cattle Fair of Sta. Teresa offers a broad framework of aneencan culture.
The Valls d’Àneu MTB Center is in the region of culd in the heart of the Pyrenees. Specifically in the Valls d’ Àneu .
Having as main frame the Noguera Pallaresa that takes place in the middle of white water, it allows us the possibility of enjoying adventure sports at the highest level; canoe of aiguas bravas, rafting, « kayac », canoes in the Lake of Torrassa, canyoning, etc. they allow us to enjoy the most « magical » natural landscapes of the Catalan Pyrenees.
