DISCOVER LA SEU D’URGELL AND VISIT ITS IMPRESSIVE ROMANESQUE CATHEDRAL
La Seu d’Urgell, located in a plain surrounded by high mountains, is the capital of the Pyrenean region of Alt Urgell. It is located in the Pyrenees and is part of the natural region of Urgellet, which together with Andorra was the original territory of the County of Urgell. The small city is also the seat of the Bishopric of Urgell since the 5th century and has the only Romanesque cathedral in Catalonia: the Seo, an impressive building surrounded by small and pleasant streets of medieval origin.
Since 1992, when it was an Olympic sub-site, La Seu d’Urgell has had the Parc Olímpic del Segre, where different types of activities can be practiced: rafting, canoeing, kayaking, etc.
ENJOY A PLEASANT WALK ALONG THE BANKS OF THE RIVERS SEGRE AND VALIRA
After visiting the beautiful cathedral and strolling through the streets of the old town, we will have the opportunity to walk along the banks of the rivers Segre and Valira, from where we can admire the pla d’Urgell and the impressive mountains that surround it.
VISIT ARSÈGUEL AND CASTELLBÒ, TWO POSTCARD VILLAGES
Arsèguel and Castellbò are two of the most beautiful villages in the region. The small and beautiful village of Arsèguel, located at the gates of the Cadí, is a set of medieval origin with Arabic roof houses, wooden balconies and a beautiful Romanesque church from where we can contemplate the majestic north face of the Cadí-Moixeró.
