torrassaThe skiing season is almost finished, but the Pirenees area of Pallars Sobirá is worth seeing any time of the year. Located in the central Pyrenees, Pallars Sobirà stretches from south to north, starting at the gorge of Collegats to the village of Alós d’Isil, following the course of the river Noguera Pallaresa. It is the fourth biggest region in Catalonia in terms of surface area, and has one of the lowest densities of population in the country- about 5.1 inhabitants per km². All together, it has approximately 7,000 inhabitants.

Pallars Sobirà contains the largest lake in the Pyrenees, the lake of Certascan, and the highest peak in Catalonia, the Pica d’Estats (3,143 m).

Most of Pallars Sobirà is a protected nature reserve. There are a few territories that belong to the PEIN (Pla d’Espais d’Interès Natural de Catalunya- Natural Interest Landscape Plan of Catalonia), as Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, the Alt Pirineu Natural Park, the Natural Partial Reserve of La Noguera Pallaresa – Collegats, a wide range of areas belonging to the Natura 2000 network, the Natural Hunting Reserve of Boumort, etc.
