A myriad of proposals to enjoy nature

The Alt Pirineu Natural Park, declared in 2003, is the largest protected natural area in Catalonia, with an area of almost 80,000 ha. Beneath the highest peak in the Catalan Pyrenees, the Pica d’Estats (3,143 m), this unique territory is a reserve of Pyrenean natural and cultural heritage. It stands out for the extensive pastures maintained by the action of such emblematic cattle and animals as the rooster, the badger or the brown bear.
