Valle Del Madriu – Perafita – Claror in Andorra
Videos | Gallery | Unexplored | Stories
The Valle Del Madriu – Perafita – Claror area just South of the capital Andorra la Vella is one of outstanding cultural significance and recognised as such by UNESCO who have made this a designated site in Andorra. Due to the way life has been lived out in these mountain landscapes and the way flat meadows have been grazed, so it has become a place to visit.
Highly recommended as a hiking or horse trekking area, and being the largest of the three National Parks in Andorra this is not to be missed. The area is dotted with civilization that has lived here before. Stone walls, barns and cabins are scattered through the area. There are signs of iron working and charcoal too, but the highlight is walking on the “Old Stone Path” which joins Andorra to France and Spain.
The Valle Del Madriu – Perafita – Claror is a glacial valley that has towering mountains rising all around you and in winter, makes the ideal location to ski. Look out for the wetland environments in summer that offer a great deal of biodiversity and recognised as such by Ramsar. If you happen to have visited and snapped a picture or two, send them to me and lets get them in the gallery.
