ENCAMP SUMMER 2020

ENCAMP SUMMER 2020

Encamp Summer 2020.

During this summer 2020, and until September 15, the Encamp Community organizes various guided routes among its ancient cultural heritage.

This parish located in the centre of our beautiful country, enjoys a wonderful and strategic enclave, which has given it a plus throughout all these centuries.

The maximum capacity of the groups will be reduced following the sanitary indications due to Covid19

These guided routes are carried out in the following cultural heritage:

 

Casa Cristo:

It takes the visitor to Andorra in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. And more specifically, to the humblest stratum of society at the time, since this construction was inhabited by a family of landless laborers. This three-storey town house was renovated at the end of the last century, but it has maintained its distribution and its most important elements as testimony to a way of life that has already passed.

 

Historical complex of Sant Romà de les Bons:

It is located on a rock in the town of Les Bons, in Encamp, Andorra. This set is made up of the Romanesque Church of Sant Romà (which dates from the 12th century), a SXIII watchtower, a water tank with an irrigation circuit carved out of the rock, a fortified house of civil architecture from the 17th century and two dovecotes.

 

Orri del Cubil:

The Orri are simple constructions that were used until the beginning of the 20th century to keep sheep farming. This Orri is believed to have been built in the 18th century.

The function of the Orri was not only to guard the flock, but also to be able to welcome the shepherd during the summer while the flock grazed in the mountains.

 

And the traditional urban centres of the parish.

In Andorra, the Three Nations park, the largest natural park in the Pyrenees!

In Andorra, the Three Nations park. Andorra, Spain and France: a common brand for 4 natural parks in the Pyrenees

In Andorra, the Three Nations park.

Two main objectives are clearly shown
It’s official: the Pyrenean Natural Park of the Three Nations was officially born at the end of August. Specifically, it brings together the following four natural parks in Spain, France and Andorra in a single entity:
The Natural Park of Alt Pirineu (Spain),
The Ariégeoises Regional Pyrenees Natural Park (France)
The natural parks of the Sorteny Valley and the Comapedrosa Valley (Andorra).
As the director of the Regional Natural Park of the Pyrenees Ariège, Matthieu Cruège, highlights, the main objective of the creation of the Pyrenean Natural Park of the Three Nations is to better promote this area, as well as its protection, particularly in terms of biodiversity (fauna, flora , etc.) of what is now one of the largest high mountain areas in Europe.

Other specific goals

The creation of the Pyrenean Natural Park of the Three Nations also aims to help its various agents to improve the joint tourism promotion of the territory thus defined (for example, the highlighting of the many hiking trails in Andorra, such as the famous GRP, in Spain and Ariège), to promote its socio-economic dynamics and facilitate exchanges in terms of sustainable development and natural heritage.

To meet these specifications, the arrival of the largest natural park in the Pyrenees provides a legal and political framework for the actions of project leaders. All while taking advantage of existing structures related to the 4.

Zoom over the Pyrenean Natural Park of the Three Nations

The Pyrenean Natural Park of the Three Nations covers exactly 428,700 hectares and 158 municipalities in Catalonia (15), Andorra (2) and France (141). If, during your stay in the Principality, you embark on some of the most prestigious hiking trails in the Sorteny or Comapedrosa valleys, you can move to the new Pyrenean Natural Park of the Three Nations.

The origins of the Three Nations Pyrenean Natural Park project

The new cross-border space stems from the passion of the region’s specialist, Ariégeois Michel Sébastien, who died unfortunately in 2016. The latter was one of the main initiators and promoters of the Three Nations Pyrenean Natural Park, such as André Rouch, president of the National Park Pyrénées Ariégeoises, remember it rightly.

A new playground for hikers

Current and future joint actions

There are already joint actions between the different parties, such as cross-border meetings initiated within the framework of the Interreg Poctefa Green, a project funded by European funds.
The exchanges are already fruitful
Regularly, Catalan producers come to Castillon-en-Couserans to discover their cheeses, and Ariège producers also visit regularly. Will trekking specialists in Andorra follow the same path to give their Catalan counterparts the magnificent beauty of the landscapes of the Principality and vice versa? This, in any case, is another idea of cooperation, such as those designed to define a common image in order to facilitate the reception of tourists and economic exchanges within the Pyrenean Natural Park of the Three Nations.

A UNESCO candidate to capture

UNESCO on the 2020-2021 horizon
The leaders of the Pyrenean Natural Park of the Three Nations also publish their goal of running for UNESCO for 2020-2021, for classification as a cross-border biosphere reserve. This would be a first for the Pyrenean chain!
An even more valued practice
The Park of the Three Nations includes the Natural Park of the Alt Pirineu in Catalonia, the Regional Natural Park of the Pyrenees of Ariège and the Natural Parks of the Sorteny Valley and the Comapedrosa Valley in Andorra. During their multiple trips along the paths of the Principality, nature and hiking enthusiasts will have long realized the importance of preserving natural spaces by protecting the biodiversity of the area and adapting economic practices and resource models Environmentally friendly humans.

This possible recognition by UNESCO would definitely validate the excellence of the Three Nations Pyrenean Natural Park project.
And for your lodging needs in Pas de la Casa, don’t forget that Frontera Blanca is the leader in vacation rentals!
