Churches such as Sant Miquéu de Vielha, Era Mair de Diu dera Purificación de Bossost, the 12th century Church of Santa Maria de Arties or the Montgarri Sanctuary, anchored in the middle of nature in the heart of the Aran Valley are examples of culture Romanesque that we will find in this privileged environment.

Typical are also the traditional fairs and festivals of the different towns of the Aran Valley that come from immemorial times and the Traditional Aranese Dances. Festivities such as Eth Haro in Les and Eth Taro in Arties, which culminate the summer solstice with the burning of the trunk of a fir tree as an act of demand for the purification of the lands, remain intact and faithfully remind us of what life was like in the valley centuries ago.

Ski and snow

Ski and snow

Enjoy one of the best ski resorts in the country. The Baqueira-Beret station, located in the same valley, becomes a privileged area due to the quality of its snow. Its north orientation, its climate and the care of its slopes favor better quality and quantity snow and its maintenance for a longer time.

The Baqueira-Beret resort offers different types of slopes that allow you to practice alpine skiing and snowboarding at all levels, from the most inexperienced beginner to those who already have a good style and only use red and black slopes.

The skier will find in the Aran Valley a good number of schools and specialized instructors for all types of students, even for people with special requirements, such as some type of disability; in addition to having monitors who speak different foreign languages.

Another of the great attractions of the Aran Valley is its great gastronomic culture.

Traditional dishes such as "òlha aranesa", patés and craft cheeses, game meat stews, the typical "crespets" or sturgeon and nacarii caviar (made in the Aran Valley) are some of the dishes that visitors will find in the many restaurants in the area specialized in Aranese cuisine.

There are also numerous shops where you can buy typical and craft products such as home-made patés, sausage, craft cheeses, jams and typical liqueurs such as aigua de nodes (walnut liquor) or craft beer made in the Aran Valley.

A must-see are the facilities where nacarii caviar is made, where you will learn first-hand all the secrets of caviar and sturgeon meat.



For the visitor looking for a few days of relaxation, the Aran Valley offers the possibility of submerging in sulphurous waters as the Romans did, in the middle of nature and benefiting from their mineral-medicinal properties.

We can enjoy these benefits in the Termas de la Baronia located in the town of Les, and in Els Banhs de Tredós, located on the Ribera d'Aiguamoig, within the periphery of the Parc Nacional d'Aigüestortes, which, located at 1,740 m., is the highest spa in Europe.



The bicycle will become your great ally if you want to get to know the Aran Valley in depth and enjoy nature. You can enjoy signposted routes both in the mountains and on the road, walks along the river or through the villages of the Valley or technical descents through the lush forests.

If the road is your thing, you will be able to access epic ports that have been the scene of major competitions such as the Tour de France or La Vuelta of Spain.
