«O Port» as the area’s people call «Els Ports de Beseit«, is a mountain range between the Catalan Pré-littoral Mountain Ranges and the Iberian System Mountains, and it is a formidable barrier between the plains of the Baix Ebre and the interior regions, like Matarranya and Terra Alta.
The rivers and gorges have made their way through the limestone of these mountains. We can find some wonderful gorges, one of the main attractions of this area: Gúbies do Parrissal, os Estreitos de Arnés, lhes Gúbies do Regatxol, as Gúbies do Vall Figuera, o Barranco da Paridora, o Barranco da Caramella, etc.
The other attractions of this area are the wildlife, represented by the wild goat known locally as Sauvatge (Capra pyrenaica hispanica), which is relatively easy to see, and vegetation, where you can find the southernmost beech forest of the Iberian Peninsula.
For these site you can go on some very interesting hikes, such as the route of the «Els Estels do Sud«, a five-day trip and 120 km in this area that allows us to get near these wonderful places.
