Llavorsí

Guide to the Municipalities

Llavorsí is the Catalan rafting capital and, by extension, popular for all adventure sports, as it lies on the best section of the Noguera Pallaresa to have a go at white water sports. In addition, the village is home to the l’Alt Pirineu Nature Park Information Centre and is the entranceway, as it is the lowest part of the valleys of Àneu, Cardós and Ferrera.

The natural landscape, apart from the river, offers special locations such as the valleys of Baiasca and Romadriu. The architectural heritage includes the attraction of the typically Pyrenean construction of the buildings. The churches of Sant Serni de Baiasca and Santa Anna de Llavorsí, the sanctuary of la Mare de Déu de Biuse and the remains of the monastery of Sant Pere de Vellanega are the most noteworthy points of architectural interest.
