Ordesa & Monte Perdido National Park
This park is the second oldest in the Iberian Peninsula, it was declared as a protected area in 1918, and it is located in the heart of the Pyrenees of Huesca, entirely in the Sobrarbe region, Aragon. It also has the distinction of World Heritage Site by UNESCO for comprising part of the territory of the Pyrenees - Monte Perdido.

Its more than 89,000 hectares are divided into 4 main areas: Ordesa Valley, Añisclo Canyon, Escuain Gorge and Pineta Valley.

 

 

Aigüestortes & Lake Sant Maurici National Park
The only national park located in the Catalan Pyrenees, located in four different counties: Aran Valley, Pallars Sobirà, Pallars Jussà and Alta Ribagorça. This protected area's most representative element is water, which we will find constantly in the form of rivers, lakes and waterfalls if we walk through its large trail network.

It has several entrances, including Aigüestortes and Cavallers Dam through Boí Valley, Sant Maurici Lake through Espot, Colomèrs through Aran Valley and Sallente dam in Fosca Valley.
