Montsonis Medieval Village - An exclusive setting for birdspotting

Montsec Range

The renowned Mont-rebei gorge, the sheer cliffs of Mont-roig and the stunning views from the heights of Montsec d'Ares all form part of the Montsec range and its zone of influence. Truly spectacular, yet largely unexplored by the travelling naturalist. That's a shame, because just look at what they're missing
