In the heart of the Montsant mountain range, a quintessential kingdom of rock, a river, which shares its name with the mountain range, offers an exceptional landscape, both in terms of aesthetics and in content. In the Fraguerau gorge, the human footprint, as a result of the need to pluck wealth from a rough terrain and a reflection of its spirituality, is integrated into surprisingly diverse and attractive nature. An oasis nestled between cliffs, where time seems to have stopped.ALL THE SPACES IN THE NETWORK
