Environment

Cal Salvadó Torres is in the region of La Noguera, ideal to enjoy the landscape and nature. In La Noguera are two different areas: one formed by the Montsec with peaks reaching 1,600 meters high and a flat area formed of farmland, for all kind of tastes.

The Montsec is filled of forests of oak and pine trees, wich favor the appearance of edible mushrooms in autumn. There you can also enjoy an amazing wildlife, a great ornithological life and both aquatic and mammalian. To highlight, the blue-green water that runs through the Montsec reposing in the form of reservoirs giving a sense of peace and tranquility. It is a perfect setting for trekking and outdoor activities.
