Do you know his story?

The Vall d'Aran stands out for having its own identity. Its history goes back to the 3rd century BC, due to the fact that documents have been found that speak of an ancient tribe that inhabited the Pyrenees and was called Arenosis. There was also a notable Roman presence and later with the fall of Rome Germanic tribes. During the Napoleonic invasion it was in the hands of the French until in 1815 it returned to the Kingdom of Spain. Thanks to the construction of the Vielha tunnel, communications in the region were improved, given that due to the winter snows the territory was completely cut off from communication.

One of the best known is the church of Sant Andreu in Salardú. It dates from the 12th century and inside is the Christ of Salardú, a very valuable Romanesque carving.

It has 103 slopes that are suitable for all levels of skiing as well as four children's snow parks. If you want to learn all the secrets of skiing, more than 25 ski schools with a large number of highly qualified instructors are available to you. On the other hand, around the track you will see high mountain lakes of great beauty.

Do the Chariots of Fire route

During the journey you will pass by places of great beauty such as the Colomers lake, the Contraix pass or the Sant Maurici lake. One of the advantages of this route is that it can be planned according to the experience and physical level of the participants.

Aigüestortes National Park and Sant Maurici lake

Located in one of the most privileged places in the Pyrenees, the Aigüestortes National Park covers an area of more than 40,000 hectares. It is formed by a series of valleys that are surrounded by peaks of more than 3000 meters of altitude. It stands out for having an abundant flora and fauna and a large presence of rivers and waterfalls as well as more than 200 lakes spread throughout its territory. You have available a large network of trails along which you can walk in complete freedom and which will allow you to enjoy a unique natural landscape. We recommend that you go to Sant Maurici Lake, a lake of indescribable beauty where you can take a boat ride through its waters.

A walk through history in Canejan

Canejan is one of the municipalities with the best views in the entire region. Historically, it has been considered a place of great military importance. Strolling through its streets you will be able to see a set of buildings and monuments from the medieval period. Its Romanesque bridge stands out, which had already been an ancient Roman road. Its churches and stone houses are in a very good state of conservation, which means that the town maintains its rural charm.

Visit its museums

The cultural offer offered by the Vall d'Aran is very important. Many of its municipalities have museums where works of great artistic value are exhibited. In the Eth Corrau Museum in Bagergue there is an exhibition of tools from the rural world such as carts, carpentry tools or mining wagons. Another very important museum is the Musèu dera Val d'Aran, with a large collection of art pieces that come from the Romanesque churches of the region. Be sure to visit the Ecomuseum of Çò de Joanchiquet in Vilamòs. A rural house converted into a museum where you can see life in the valley between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th.

MTB route

The Vall d'Aran stands out for its high mountain landscapes where forests, meadows, lakes and rivers abound. A good way to see them up close is to take a mountain bike route. Throughout the Aranese territory you will find numerous signposted routes that are classified according to the level of difficulty. If you like challenges, there are routes that are very demanding due to the fact that they cross gradients of around a thousand meters.
