Surrounding Terradets

Description

The Terradets Gorge is located at the Monstec mountains and it is the gate to the Pallars Jussà region from the neighbouring la Noguera. In 1935, the company Barcelona Traction, Light and Power Company Limited, known as the Canadian, built the Terradets Dam to obtain hydroelectricity from the waters of the river Noguera Pallaresa.

From that time on, the landscape in this area has been continuously changing. The accumulation at the end of the reservoir of big amounts of sediments from the erosion of the Conca de Tremp ravines has produced a damp area that has been growing on surface with the years. Reed swamps and bank forests cover now the banks of the reservoir, attracting a rich fauna community. This landscape diverges from the ones surrounding it, with the cliffs of the Terradets Gorge with steep walls with up to 350 m gradients, such as Roca Regina; or the vast shaded woods of the Montsec, with pines and oaks.

The adapted route is 3.3 km long, between the service station of the C-13 road at “La Pineda” and the Monares bridge, passing by the village of Cellers and the train station of Cellers-Llimiana. Part of the route is accessible to visitors with reduced mobility. It is linked with the hiking routes network of the region, so it allows you to continue hiking to the North following the Noguera Pallaresa river up to Tremp, or walking along the Montsec d’Ares through the trails of Brugal, Roca Regina and the barranc del Bosc (the forest ravine).

The route along the right bank of the Terradets reservoir will lead you into a rich natural space with beautiful landscapes and with lively villages despite its long history.

We invite you to discover this area of the Pallars region, and get to know the people who live here and who have made possible the conservation of the territory.
