Alt Àneu

Guide to the Municipalities

The municipality of Alt Àneu offers visitors an ancient tradition and a rich heritage, both natural and cultural. A network of paths communicate the eight villages that form the municipality, located in the valleys of Àneu, at the northern extreme of Pallars Sobirà.

The municipality has impressive pine tree and fir tree forests. Its location, close to the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, multiplies the possibilities of going on excursions in the natural landscape of the Pyrenees.

The traditional Pyrenean architecture characterises these villages, which extend along the bottom of the valleys. The remains of the castle of València d'Àneu, the churches of Sant Joan d'Isil and Sant Llorenç d'Isavarre or the monumental ensemble of Son are some of the most remarkable tourist attractions of the municipality.

Economic activity

The scarcity of cultivable land in comparison with the abundance of pastures and forest has fostered the development of local sheep and cattle raising. During the summer, it also accommodates livestock from other regions. Thus, fodders are grown and the natural meadows and forests are exploited. Tourism and the second home have recently experienced development.
