the lakes

Lakes or dams. Is the name born from the thing?

Four great sheets of water which we find along the journey: Sant Llorenç de Montgai, Camarassa, Cellers and Sant Antoni.

The calm and clean blue waters reflects the rough mountain range of El Montsec and it turns to be a paradise for those who like practising all kinds of water sports.

These are contructions from the first third of the 20th century with the aim of providing water resources for drinking and irrigation and also for generating hydroelectric power to the cities or towns of the country.

  • Sant Llorenç

    Nature wildlife reserve area for iis wide variety of water fauna.Electric power and irrigated land. Place suitable for birdwatching.

  • Camarasa

    Lake of 20km length which is joined to the confluence of the Noguera Pallaressa and Segre waters.

  • Cellers

    It has the latest and largest foothill of The Pyrenees. It stretches out from the Plains to the deep valley of Tremp to the inner part of El Congost de Terradets(gorge). Its calm waters, hardly ever at the same level, have created an authentic riverside wood with a natural lake appearance.

  • Sant Antoni

    It is the largest surface of fresh water in Catalonia. It has a depth of 86m and 972 hectares of surface. It is an ideal place to practise water sports or enjoy the calm of its beaches and creeks, only reachable by boat,which leads us to amazing spots.
