The Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park is located in the heart of the Catalan Pyrenees , this is the most genuine representation of a mountainous area. The majestic landscapes and views and the highly varied flora and fauna that live within its borders make this is a truly unique location.  Centuries old woods of fir trees and black pines are scattered around the park, which also contains nearly 200 mountain lakes. This is the habitat of the wild goat, the capercaillie, the marmot and the legendary bearded vulture (also known as the lammergeyer).
