Vineyards and olive groves at the base of a mountain wilderness

The eastern Pyrenees in Catalonia are a sparsely populated and untamed mountain range extending all the way to Andorra. The highest mountain is the Pica d'Estas at 3,143 meters, which is near the French border. Andorra is situated between France and Catalonia. This independent mountain principality is located at the headwaters of the Serge, which flows south towards Ebro. To the east, the mountains drop down to the Mediterranean and their foothills are covered with olive groves, vineyards and cork trees.



Attractions Catalonian Pyrenees

La Seu d’Urgell

Provincial town at the base of the Sierra de Cadi

This town lies at the confluence of the Valira and Segre rivers near the mini state of Andorra. The spectacular Sierra de Cadí mountain range rises up from the southeastern section of town. The city's cathedral dates to the 11th century and was influenced by Italian Romanticism. The 15th-century town hall and the Diocesan Museum are also worth a visit. Remarkable medieval paintings and sculptures can be seen in the museum. The historic city center has beautiful streets lined with arcades and old stores. Here you will find the Sant Domingo monastery, which has been renovated to now house the Parador Hotel.

Salardú

Fortified town in the Valle de Arán

This town in the Valle de Arán was fortified during the Middle Ages on account of its geographical location. The upper section of town, where a church stands today, was once the site of a castle. The Plaza Mayor represents the center of the old town and features a lovely 18th-century fountain. The church of Sant Andreu houses the Christo de Salardú, a Romanesque sculpture measuring 60 cm in height. No visit is complete without first having tried the local stew known as olla aranesa, which is the region's most famous dish.
