The Lleida area
From their lodging quarters in Casa Bosque, visitors can make the most of the countless leisure opportunities offered by the municipality of the Barony of Rialb. Sail down the river Segre by boat or raft, climb some of the steep rock walls nearby, explore the zone on foot or bike (or hop on an old car and join the rally of old-time cars, by now almost a local tradition) or climb down the Forat del Buli, an unbeatable experience-these proposals are only some among the most interesting.
Cliff-Climbing at the Forat del Buli
The Forat del Buli is a gorge that cuts deep inside the Rialb's river basin, with an impressive natural area that has yet to be explored. Its land features make it ideal for adventure sports, such as cliff-climbing.
Not much disturbed by human presence, sunk in the peace and quiet of the woods, this natural place has put cliff-climbing at the forefront. You can practice it on your own or hire the services of any of the adventure sports companies that abound in the comarca.
#Take Advantage of the Rialb Dam
At the farther end of the Rialb river is a newly constructed dam, an ideal place for water sports like canoeing, sailing, or fishing.
As a plus, there are two fish farms along the river and the landscape is full of natural attractive.
Canoeing and sailing have almost become a tradition here, given the aptness of the surroundings. The river volume is always stable.
The Rialb river is also a perfect place for trout fishing: restocked trouts downriver and local-born trouts upriver. The latter may be fished but not killed, which is very important for the conservation of the indigenous species.
#Route of the Castles of Lleida
One of the most stimulating itineraries that Lleida has to offer is the "Route of the Castles: A Trip to the Past". These well-preserved fortresses waft visitors back in time to the Middle Ages, a period in which these lands marked the frontier between the Arab and Christian worlds.
The classic route of the Lleidatan castles includes 6 fortresses: Montsonís, in La Noguera; Montclar, in Urgell; Florejacs, Les Pallargues, and Vicfred, in La Segarra; and Mur, in Pallars Jussà.
Medieval castles and fortresses abound in the comarca; guided visits to the castles are a good opportunity to learn about the history of the so-called "Castile of Catalonia".
Opening hours of the Castles: Individual visit without previous booking: Saturdays: 17.00, 18.00, and 19.00; Sundays: 11.00, 12.00, 13.00. Groups booking in advance: any day of the week; must book in advance on the following number: 973402045.
