Aigüestortes and Sant Maurici National Park (Lérida)

This natural treasure, with peaks that exceed 3000 metres, and around 200 high mountain lakes, ravines, rivers and waterfalls, is a peaceful paradise of clear, pure water. This enchanting landscape supports lammergeiers and griffon vultures as well as golden eagles, capercaillies and dippers, which call the sparkling waters their home. Its breathtaking mountain scenery, flora, Alpine fauna and ancient woodlands are remarkable, as are its important Roman legacy and its famous spas.
