Here there are different ecosystems: in the low areas, meadows, crops and forests. At medium altitude, evergreen forests and in the highest zones, high mountain rocks. As it is a protected site, the flora and fauna are kept in a fairly wild state. Anyway, the footprint of man is present through livestock and hydroelectric exploitation mainly.
Best time to visit
All year round although the best time is during the European summer
The eastern zone has a continental climate and is fed by the tributaries of the Noguera Pallaresa, which flow into the San Mauricio Lake. The western side (Aigüestortes) has a high mountain Atlantic climate with tributaries from the Noguera Ribagorzana
