Marked by the deep gorge formed by the Noguera Pallaresa river between towering red cliffs and the impressive Queralt rocks, this natural area offers landscapes of great contrast and a wide range of outdoor activities.
Natural area with spectacular landscapes located in Pallars. Almost eighty percent of the area can be found in Pallars Jussà, whilst the remaining twenty percent belongs to Pallars Sobirà. It is formed around the gorge of the Noguera Pallaresa river, which opens up a narrow rift between giant walls of reddish outcrops, and the large Queralt rock formations. In addition, this section of the river is also a partial nature reserve. In terms of plant and wildlife, we can highlight the pine forests, the different types of moss and the presence of otters. A large number of bird of prey and bats inhabit the cracks and caves of the cliffs.
The area is very popular among outdoor sports fans thanks to its easy access from the N-260 road and the wide range of tourism infrastructures related to nature and sports activities. Among others, it is possible to go hiking, climbing rafting or canyoning, which takes place in the spectacular Sant Pere de l’Infern gorge.
