Boí and Aran Valleys, in the Pyrenees
Boí valley, a hidden spot in the Pyrenees, was already well known in the past by the romans, looking for its termal water springs. Located near the National Park of Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici, it is a great place to enjoy the alpine flora in the cool summer and the impressive Romanesque UNESCO heritage, with 9 chapels well communicated with each other by ancient cobbled paths, built back in the XIth Century.
A bit further north, facing the Atlantic and isolated by the high mountains, specially during the long winter months, you will discover the Aran valley. The isolation was important enough to develop a new language, aranès, from the Gascoigne group. Here, you can enjoy one of the mostly diverse spots in alpine flora, like Pla de Beret, and visit the old remains of the first inhabitants of the valley, back to Ist Century bC.
Below we suggest different ways to enjoy both valleys, like the Summer hiking flowers and Romanesque art, guided by our local biologist, or enjoy the old tradition of fire around the solstice, in the Falles& Flowers getaway.
