Montsec

The Mas de Bruquet, has a privileged view of the Sierra del Montsec, where we can practice adventure sports (paragliding, climbing), travel into space through the Astronomical Observatory of Montsec or simply walk its paths.

The Montsec is a series of limestone mountain ranges of more than 40 km long and 18,696 hectares spread between the regions of Noguera, Pallars Jussà and Ribagorza. The thrust and erosive force of the rivers Noguera Pallaresa and Noguera Ribagorçana have managed to draw and outline the spectacular gorges of Mont-rebei and Terradets, which, at the same time, divide the mountain range into three sectors: from east to west between the gorge of Pas Nou and the gorge of Terradets we have the Montsec de Rúbies, practically the entire north face belongs to the municipality of Llimiana. Between the gorge of Terradets and the gorge of Mont-Rebei, we have the Montsec d’Ares and to the west of the gorge of Mont-rebei, we call it Montsec d’Estall.

The highest peaks are Sant Alís (1676), Tossal de la Torreta (1676) and Tossal de Mirapallars and Urgell (1668).

From Mas de Bruquet, in a circle of 35 km (40 minutes by car), we can reach almost any point of the Montsec. The Montsec sky is recognized worldwide as one of the best free flight zones, and at night one of the best skies in the world for astronomical observation, as recognized by the StarLight Reserve certification by Unesco.

We can practice air sports (paragliding, ballooning, hang-gliding), water sports (canoeing, water skiing, fishing), travel into space through the Montsec Astronomical Park, enter one of its caves, climb its impressive walls of more than 300 meters high or hike along its paths.
