Castellar del Riu, Cercs, Fígols, Gósol, Saldes and Vallcebre.


This area constitutes one of Catalonia's southern boundaries of Alpine and sub-Alpine vegetation. Particularly noteworthy in the higher zones are the Alpine meadows with a great many Pyrenean species and the forests of Swiss mountain pine and rhododendrons. In the lower areas, pine forests predominate, though we can also find woods of woolly oaks with boxtrees and beeches in the shadier areas.

The fauna here is very similar to that found in the Cadí-Moixeró Nature Park, although not quite as rich. The highest peak in this area is Gallina Pelada (also known as Cap Llitzet), with an altitude of 2,307 metres; this can be reached from either the south or north face of the range.

The Delgado Ubeda refuge is located near the peak. The entire Serra d'Ensija range is a good place for trying some mountain walking, as there are gentle routes with different levels of difficulty, and amazing views can be enjoyed from the higher points along these routes.

This area contains one of the two ski stations that exist in the province of Barcelona: Els Rasos de Peguera.
