NATIONAL PARK

Espot is a small town located at Pyrenees mountains in Lleida province.Is a nice and quiet place to spend few days,it has a few small hotels and restaurants.
This is a very tourist area because just outside of Espot you'll find one of two entrances to the
National Park of Aiguestortes,also very close you have a Ski station for practice of all kind of winter sports,it is called Superespot and is located about 8 miles from Espot.
This is a beautiful area to explore if you are a nature lover or just want to be relaxed for a few days,really this is the perfect place to see real nature,wildlife,lakes,and have fun during wintertime!.
There are two main acces to the National Park,one is located in northern in Espot,the other main entrance is in the southern in the valley of Boí-Taull.

Unfortunatelly during my last visit to the park,it was closed by snow and icy roads,but at least I was lucky enough because I used the second acces and even tough the park was closed,I had the chance to see a little part of it,and I've been using one of walking trails for a while,and then I had the chance to make some very good pictures,the day it was very sunny and clear as you can see on my photos.

I'll show you on this page some pictures and information of the National Park and other interesting places to see around

    Those mountains are beautiful. They remind me of the Rocky Mountains in the American west. Looks like a great area for nature lovers.

    Manuel, Great shots of the lovely landscapes. The national parks sound wonderful. St. Maurici Lake & the picturesque villages are delightful.. Hotel LaMorera was a real find. Love the photo of the cows!
