    They said to us "This is Barcelona" and showed us a postcard of the Pedraforca. We didn't believe it, but just 2 hours outside Barcelona you can be in the heart of the countryside and the Pyrenees mountains.

    In the Pyrenees, you have plenty to do, whether it's sport, culture or gastronomy. In any season of the year, if you go to Barcelona, take a break in the Pyrenees, and discover it for yourselves.

  • Autumn Transforms

    The autumn, oh so lovely. Transformation abounds…everywhere you look in the Val d'Aran there is change.

Their hues of green, yellow, orange, red and rusty brown compare to the finest of paintings.
