The Voices of the Pamano, novel landscapes of La Vall d’Àssua
For many years, the Pallars Sobirà has inspired novels and has been the scene of different films.
The route we propose is based on one of the most successful national and international novels, by Jaume Cabré, Les Veus del Pamano, which has also been taken to the small screen. The novel, which can be described as an exciting historical thriller, can be found in many languages and the film can be found on DVD.
The scenes in the novel are so diverse that it would take many days to get through them all. With the itinerary we propose you will discover the main ones, the town of Torena and its mountains, bordes-hiding places, the school of the teacher of Torena, the house of Elisenda Vilabrú, the town of the mayor Targa, the ‘Tuca Ski Resort … and relive various episodes of the novel and other interesting aspects of the setting on the spot. So, we will leave Sort and head to Seurí, about 13 km, to start the route on foot, going down first to the Pamano river, then going up to the place on the outskirts of Seurí, stopping for so long. occasionally to contemplate the landscape of La Vall d’Àssua that still retains all the charm of the livestock areas.
After a while we will reach the access track of the old ski resort of Llessui, and entrance to the National Park, from where you can very well imagine the feeling of Elisenda Vilabrú when he says ” All these lands are mine … “We will continue downhill to the town of Llessui, where the Shepherds’ Museum of La Vall d’Àsua-office of the Aigüestortes National Park and Sant Maurici lake are located.
From there, by a path, we will return to Seurí, at the top of which we find the church of Sant Víctor, which houses the pictorial intervention of the contemporary artist, Santi Moix. In La Vall d’Àssua you will also find charming lodgings and are known to the locals for its gastronomy, so we recommend completing the experience by having a meal in Llessui, Bernui or Altron!
Come and enjoy literature, fiction, nature, history and gastronomy with the Voices of the Pamano! Health tourism with added value.
