Pallars Sobirà catches you!
Years ago, Pallars Sobirà had a traditional mountain economy centered on agricultural activities and on logging, activities, that were supplemented by the exploitation of the salt flats of Gerri de la Sal.
Later, towards the middle of the 20th century, industries were able to take advantage of the great abundance of water. But during the last decades tourism has grown in importance due to the great beauty of the landscape of the region, the character of its populations and the playful possibilities offered.
The National Park of d'Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici and the Alt Pirineu Natural Park attract many people. Nevertheless, alpine ski, cross-country ski, mountain ski, snowshoe, canoeing, adventure sports, hunting and fishing attract a large number of tourists too.
There is also a great offer of museums, exhibitions, workshops, Romanesque art, architectural and archaeological remains, and picturesque villages. Regarding the gastronomy, it has been influenced by the mountain and the self-sufficiency and it is highly recommended to try the most traditional recipes.
