Welcome to the gateway to the Valls de Cardós
We will discover some treasures of the front door in Les Valls de Cardós, Ribera de Cardós. When we arrive at Llavorsí we have 2 options, follow the C-13 road that crosses from the south to the north of the Pallars Sobirà region or divert to one of the most remote main valleys of the Pallars Sobirà, the Vall de Cardós and the Vall Farrera, in the heart of the Alt Pirineu Natural Park.
If we choose to enter these valleys we will find a roundabout, and on the left, the road narrows to the place called “Lo forat de Cardós”, a prelude to a world of possibilities, a valley of valleys, with the Valley of Estaón, the Valley of Esterri of Cardós, the Valley of Montamara …; plains, such as the Pla de Nequa (legendary meeting place for witches) and the Pla de Boavi …; Romanesque bridges and churches; summits like the Puitavaca, the Caubo …; lakes such as the Port or Certascán (the largest in the Pyrenees); snow valleys in winter (which you can enjoy at the Tavascan-Lladorre ski resort); valleys of exile roads of the civil war and the second world war, such as those of the Port of Tavascán or Guiló …; food industry (who has not tried Ainet sausages and yoghurts? do you know the tavascan omelet and its derivatives?); of artisans; valleys of legends like those of Les Encantades …
With the route-visit that we propose you will discover some treasures and features of Les Valls de Cardós, and especially of Ribera de Cardós (Noguera de Cardós, in the novel “What happened in Cardós”, by Ramon Solsona) , the first town that we find when we enter the Valls de Cardós where certain constructions like those of the hydroelectric period go unnoticed that remind us that “It was here, in Pallars, where a technological revolution began that in that moment was the most advanced in Europe “(” What happened in Cardós “, Ramon Solsona) And they also go unnoticed: the house of the movie “Mature Green”, overlooking the valley; the center hotel of the filming of “La Dama de Alba”; the Butterfly Museum of Catalonia; the wood industry or the church of Santa Maria that we will visit in detail …
All this and more, we will tell you during the tour!
We look forward to seeing you,
