EXCURSIONS IN THE SURROUNDINGS OF SORT

Circular route 12.8 km long where we visit the small villages scattered around the mountain of Batlliu de Sort. The starting and finishing point of the route is Sort. From here we visit the villages of Olp, Pujalt, Enviny and Bressui. The route is well signposted and runs along well-defined paths and tracks along old dry stone walls. From Sort to Olp the path always climbs. The section between Olp and Enviny flanks the mountain on flat or gently ascending terrain. From Enviny to Bressui and Sort the path goes downhill.
 
The circular route through the Batlliu de Sort takes us into an area full of history. We discover small villages of houses perched in the middle of the mountain, meadows with traditional dry stone walls, forests of oak, hackberry and maple trees, and we enjoy a good panoramic view of the valley of the river Noguera Pallaresa and the Torreta de l'Orri. A beautiful route that allows us to discover a fairly unknown area of Pallars Sobirà.
