Traditional stone houses in the Catalan Pyrenees

Villages of the Catalan Pyrenees

The Catalan Pyrenees are a walker’s paradise, offering unspoiled mountains, quaint villages, Romanesque churches, and the warmest climate of the Pyrenean range. Enjoy fantastic mountain walks through the warm, wooded hills of the Garrotxa and the dramatic final peaks of the Pyrenees, areas where the red and yellow Catalan flag flies proudly.
