Valley of Aran

In the Pyrenees of Lleida we find the valley of Aran, formed by 620 square kilometres of extensive vegetation that reaches heights above 2,000 meters. Here is one of the best ski resorts in our country, Baqueira-Beret.

In the valley you will find picturesque villages, such as Vielha or Arties, full of buildings characterized by their Romanesque and Gothic architecture that with the snow on their roofs become even more special, creating ideal locations to illustrate your photographic shootings more rural and with a cultural heritage without equal.


The capital of the Val d’Aran, Vielha, is a small Pyrenean city that houses 40% of the population of the valley. It is located at an altitude of 974 m, surrounded by summits that exceed 2000 m. The historical center of Vielha is of great interest, it preserves medieval houses and churches that illustrate the period of transition from Romanesque to Gothic.

The privileged natural environment of Vielha, crowned by the Pla de Beret, offers us also privileged places like the Llac de Colomes, of great natural value and full of peace.


A small and picturesque village at the confluence between the Garonne River and its tributary Valarties, at 1144 metres above sea level, in the heart of the Aran Valley. At the foot of its Romanesque church, Arties composes a mosaic of roofs and pointed slate bell towers. All this with the Pyrenean mountains as a backdrop…. are you going to miss this location for your next winter audiovisual project?


The ski resort Baqueira-Beret belongs to the municipality of Naut Aran. It is located at 1,500 metres and is the entrance to the valley of Aran by the Puerto de la Bonaigua mountain pass.

The Baqueira-Beret resort offers some of the best locations for your ski and snowboard shootings. It is one of the largest ski areas in Spain and one of the best ski resorts in the Pyrenees. It is formed by three large areas, Baqueira, Beret and Bonaigua, extending over a total of 2,000 ha of ski area.

Gerber Valley

Near the Puerto de la Bonaigua, near the ski slopes of Baqueira- Beret, lies one of the most beautiful and little known valleys of the Catalan Pyrenees, the Gerber Valley, which is one of the most beautiful places in Catalonia.

This valley is located between the Aigüestortes National Park, Estany de Sant Maurici and the Aran Valley. It is a valley full of lakes of glacial origin, which form postcard prints. Although there are about twenty lakes, the typical route is the one that leads to only three of them: Estanyera de Gerber, Estanyera del Mig and Estany de Gerber. The latter is the most impressive of the three, with its waters of an intense blue color, surrounded by mountains of granite and fir forests.

Valley of Boí

La Vall de Boí is a group of valleys and mountains located in the Alta Ribagorça, in the province of Lleida. It counts several summits up to three thousand metres, including some of those that surround Caldes de Boí.

It occupies the main basin of the river Noguera de Tor, in its course from the lake Estany de Cavallers until its encounter with the Noguera Ribagorzana river. It borders the municipality of Naut Aran, Espot, La Torre de Cabdella, Sarroca de Bellera, El Pont de Suert and Vilaller.

Vall de Boí conjugates in a perfect way its appreciable landscape values ​​with its monumental heritage. We must highlight its exceptional Romanesque churches that were built mostly between the eleventh and thirteenth century, nine of them are protected by UNESCO under the name of World Heritage.

The beauty of the churches of the Vall de Boí is only comparable to the greatness of the landscapes that surround them. Lombard belltowers that seem to want to touch the sky, stone walls, slate roofs, rounded apses, carved doorways, minimal windows, ornaments of blind arcades … A location in which it will be very easy for you to combine the high mountain landscapes with streets and churches of other times.


Taüll is a town located at 1482 metres above sea level. Its Romanesque church of Sant Climent is the photographic reference of the valley. Isn’t it a good idea to take advantage of it for your next photographic shooting or audiovisual production?


Durro overlooks the Noguera de Tor valley. Here you will find the wonderful Romanesque church of the Nativitat de Durro from the 13th century and also the Hermitage of Sant Quirc from the 12th century, located on a nearby hill from where you can appreciate the panorama of the valley. Both have been declared World Heritage Sites.

Valley of Núria

The emblematic and beautiful Vall de Nuria, together with that of Ribes, are located in the northeast of the province of Girona, in the middle of the Eastern Pyrenees.

Here we are in high mountain land. The immense meadows, the black pine forests, the cattle, the bushes and the crystal clear water of the rivers form spectacular landscapes. You can easily admire this region using its mountain routes or, more easily, when ascending by cog railway from Ribes to the foot of the Monastery of Nuria.

The Cerdanya

There is a place in Catalonia that reminds of the valleys of Switzerland surrounded by green mountains and meadows with cows, namely the region of La Cerdanya. You will not need to go so far to get an ideal location for your next audiovisual project. With one foot in Catalonia and another in France, it is a peculiar place, with its own personality, full of charming small towns.

The Cerdanya is located, mainly, in the high Valley of the Segre, one of the widest valleys in Europe. It is surrounded by the Sierra del Cadí, the Sierra del Moixeró and other eastern massifs such as the Tossa de Alp and the Puigllançada, and the Pedraforca massif, already within the Berguedà.

The scenic beauty is evident: from the pure features of the Mediterranean to the alpine meadows on culminating levels, with sub- Mediterranean forests, beech forests, red pine boreal forests, sub-alpine coniferous forests and black pine and fir forests.

La Cerdanya is an ideal place to enjoy sports in a unique environment, an environment that offers you a wide range of possibilities for any type of sport, mountain bike routes, small and long-distance trails, Nordic skiing, alpine skiing, fields golf, horse riding, fishing, mountaineering, climbing, snowshoeing…


This is the capital of the region of Cerdanya, and a good start due to its location in the eastern end of the valley and its connection by train to Barcelona. The old centre (Vila Vella) is grouped around the street Major and the Romanesque bell tower of the church of Santa Maria. The church itself was destroyed in 1936.

An especially attractive corner is the small lake located in the upper part of the city. At the beginning of the nineteenth century it was a swamp, but before the end of that century, the Barcelona bourgeoisie embellished the place with beautiful villas. It is still a luxury location in high mountain land for your next photographic shooting or audiovisual production.

National Park of Aigüestortes

The National Park of Aigüestortes and the Lake of San Mauricio is one of the most beautiful and best preserved natural spaces of the Catalan Pyrenees. Let yourself be seduced by the immense natural beauty of this mountain landscape, where the Lake of San Mauricio with the two peaks of Los Encantats in the background forms one of the most recognizable prints of this national park.

Summits that exceed three thousand meters in height, rivers, ravines, waterfalls and swamps, more than 200 ponds of different shapes and colors and snow are adorning this landscape…
