Espot in Lleida (Catalonia)



Located at the gates of the Aigüestortes National Park, Espot is one of the most beautiful towns in the region of Pallars Sobirà. The Espot Esquí ski resort is equipped with the most advanced facilities, and an interesting array of leisure activities and possibilities.

Located at the heart of the Escrita river valley, Espot is a town with typical Pyrenean architecture. Its artistic heritage includes buildings such as the parish church of Santa Llogaia and the tower of Moros, which was a defence tower in the Middle Ages. The town constitutes the main entrance of the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, a rich natural space marked by white water rivers, high mountain springs, and more than a hundred "estanys", or lakes. Gorgeous scenery, such as the Encantats peak (2,982 m), are the ideal setting for outdoor sports such as hiking and mountaineering. With the first snowfalls, the Espot Esquí ski resort becomes the centre of attention, with first-class facilities for skiing and other winter sports.
