Guess the city

December 1, 2009

It isn’t exactly a city in fact is a small village in the mountains. But they aren’t normal mountains for me they are among the best in Spain.
The landscape is this high mountains, valleys with clear pure water forming waterfalls, canyons and ravines with exuberant vegetation.
The village is the door toa well- known National Park , it was declared National Park in 1918.
Every year many people come to visit this place because it offers many ways to enjoy doing adventure sports like rafting, climbing, canyoing or just walk in nature.
The village is formed by beatiful stone and wood houses  some of which are mediaval. When you return from the mountains you can walk along the stone streets and relax or buy souvenirs and crafts in the enormous amount of shops for these things.
In the 40’s, 50’s people lived from the breeding and black market, because it’s near France. Now tourism is the main income of the population.

    Might it be Ordesa? I knew it because of the date you give us (1918) and what you tell about black market. I agree with you that it’s one of the most amazing landscapes of Spain. I was there when I was younger and I really want to come back!

    You are right. The National Park is Ordesa and the village is Torla. Come back!, you will not regret .
