El Montsec mountain range

El Montsec mountain range

Travelling by El tren dels llacs is a good way of discovering El Montsec.

Tunnels, bridges, viaducts getting past the cliffs of this lime mountain range of more than 40km of length.

The erosive strength of the Noguera Pallaressa and Noguera Ribagorçana rivers stretching out through its walls and the spectacular nature of El Congost de Mont-rebei and Terradets(gorges) divide the range into 3 main sections: from east to west,el Montsec de Rubies, Montsec D'Ares and Montsec d'Estall. Its maximum height is 1676m and each stone explains the live heritage of the passing of time.

The sky from El Montsec allows us a triple view:

  • For its light conditions and low pollution is ideal to observe the astronomy.

  • For the thermal currents are suitable for practising adventure sports related to hang-gliding.

  • For being an ideal place to observe a wide variety of birds such as the golden eagle and the Lammergeier.
