The Val d'Aran from the sky

There is no place more magical and with more history than the Pla de Beret. A large plateau at an altitude of 1,860 metres, some 4 km long, where in winter there is a snow sports centre and in summer livestock graze freely. Ancient area of witches' covens, with archaeological remains from the Bronze Age. The source of two rivers: the Garonne, which flows into the French Atlantic, and the Noguera Pallaresa, into the Mediterranean. A plain covered with snow for more than half the year, which in summer explodes with its green meadows and the mountains that watch over it.
