R08: Lap around Sant Corneli
This is the longest and most difficult itinerary that the Pallars Jussà BTT Center has. Even so, it is also the one that will let us enjoy the magnificent beauty of this region at its peak. It goes by valleys and mountains, discovering medieval castles like the Orcau Castle, karstic ponds that can only be found in Catalonia such as the Basturs or the magnificent Romanesque churches of Sant Esteve de l’Abella. This church has three barrel vault naves and a magnificent rectangular two-story bell tower, and it raises majestic guarding the village and the magnificent plane full of almond trees of la Conca Dellà. Finally, during the last and most technical part of the route, we enter the National Hunting Reserve of Boumort, where we can observe the amount of deer and birds of prey that live there, as well as enjoying the amazingly beautiful landscapes.
