National Park of Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici is one of the fifteen natural spaces included in the Spanish Network of National Parks, and the only National Park located in Catalonia. This National Parl is the most genuine and breathtaking representation of the high Pyrenees, and is unique for its majestic landscapes and rich flora and fauna. With an area of over 40,000 ha, it includes four regions with a rich natural and cultural heritage: Alta Ribagorça, Pallars Sobirà, Pallars Jussà and Val d’Aran.
Its valleys, surrounded by peaks over 3,000m high, hold a splendid selection of high-mountain Pyrenean elements, in terms of rock formations and flora and fauna. The most outstanding feature of the Park is water in all its forms: snow, rivers, water falls or in the more than 200 lakes or estanys dotted throughout the region and that give this special protection area its unique and unrepeatable character.
A full yearlong program of activities is available for young and old alike, including guided trips, snowshoes excursions in winter, conferences, exhibitions, etc.
" From a cultural point of view, in the National Park there are not only animals and plants but there are also words in all places, there are legends and ways of doing related to the human element that is one of the most important assets of our territory. "
