A little history of the region you have chosen to spend a few days in a holiday cottage

Alta Ribagorça is a region, established as such in 1988 , inhabited since ancient times, although compared to the others, it is one of the youngest in Catalonia . The so-called County of Ribagorça was the first population center in the area in the 8th century, after Guillem de Tolosa controlled the territories of Pallars and Ribagorça. This county was established as independent from the Spanish Marca and changed hands throughout history (Navarra, Kingdom of Aragon and Barcelona border).

The peak period was experienced by the region around the s. XII and XIII , as shown by the abundant medieval architecture spread throughout the region.

Alta Ribagorça, an incalculable historical and natural attraction

Despite being a sparsely populated county and with a relief and climate that do not facilitate the occupation of territory, the county has important natural resources , far from intensive agriculture and industrial activities. Its main resource is water from lakes and rivers , whose power is already harnessed by different hydroelectric plants. The other natural resource is the landscape as a whole, with the relief, the waters, the vegetation and the fauna as can be seen in the Natural Park of Aigüestortes and Sant Maurici, an important part of which is in this region. The historical value of the territory is also very high, as can be seen in the Boí valley as a whole.

The use of these resources has given life to the region, becoming an unparalleled tourist destination where you can spend a few days in a holiday cottage in nature, do sports and discover the fantastic cultural heritage of this region of the Pyrenees.
