Locatie en vrije tijd

The municipality of Talarn is located on the right bank of the Noguera Pallaresa and surrounds the town of Tremp. Mainly flat around the water of the Sant Antoni reservoir, this is an ideal spot for the practice of water sports. The village of Talarn was formed on the top of a hill, sheltered by the old castle which occupied the highest position. This village was an old medieval fortress, with walls, towers and gates of the closed village. The streets keep the appearance of the 17th century, the time of its splendour, with some noble houses such as the Baró d'Eroles property. It is also remarkable the fountain of Caps, located in the outskirts of the village and built at the beginning of the 19th century. Other places of interest are the abandoned village of Castell d'Encús, where you can see the ruins of the towns as well as the old wine vats dug in the rocks. This area produces high quality wines named Castell d'Encús, with Costers del Segre DO. Salàs has been historically an important village in the region, in the 14th century it was already authorised to celebrate an annual cattle fair which has been a reference throughout the centuries. Nowadays, this fair has become the Remembrance Day of the Salàs Fair in the beginning of November. Salàs de Pallars has kept its medieval features and still conserves three gates from this period. Nowadays, thanks to the work carried out to valorise its historical and ethnological heritage, Salàs has a remarkable exhibition of museum-shops, which reproduce the atmosphere in shops as they were in the past. The volunteers will enjoy some activities during the leisure time as: - Visit to Epicentre, visitors centre of the Geopark in Tremp. - Visit to Shop Museum in Salàs de Pallars. - Visit to the vineyards and wineries of the private houses of Talarn. - Visit the Salàs, Gerri and Conca Dellà Museums. - Visit Puigcercós Vell. - Departure to Montcortés and guided tour of the town of Peramea. - Visit to Parc Astronòmic del Montsec (PAM).
