“The National Park is the most spectacular I’ve ever visited! The route was amazing but not too hard and the way the guide treated the whole family couldn’t have been better! 100% recommended!”
“The day before the route we visited a part of the Romanesque Complex of the Boí valley. The church of Sant Climent de Taüll is a Romanesque gem worth visiting. Incredible and perfectly preserved!”
