The Vall d' Aran, Pyrenees

Part of the Pyrenees of Lleida in Catalonia and attached to the french border we find the Vall d'Aran, the Aran Valley. This autonomous region inside Catalonia has unique characteristics as for example the Aranese which is the standardized form of the Gascon variety of the Occitan language.

The landscape of the valley is typical mountainous and has atlantic climate, holding the only catalan rivers flowing into the Atlantic Ocean.

It's capital Vielha is a bustling touristic city which together with the rest of Aran profits from it's natural beauty and skiing resorts.
