There are magnificent views of river Segre’s valley from the hill Roc Beneïdor, where you can see Cadí mountain range, other hills and mountains, the Urgellet and la Seu d’Urgell plain and several towns as Castellciutat, Montferrer, Vilanova de Banat, el Pont de Bar and Arsèguel and la Seu d’Urgell airport. There are stunning views of the straits of les Cabanotes and Mollet, a narrow and deep path oopen by the river Segre between the mountains in the Alt Urgell, where there is the natural limit between Urgellet and Baridà.

You can reach the hill, where there are the great views, climbing up from Bescaran to Pla de Sorri and then following the path that leads you up to the top of the hill. You can also arrive to Pla de Sorri from Castellnou de Carcolze.

Good Friday, La Seu d’Urgell timelapse

This is my first timelapse, it consists of two parts, one with pictures of the plain of La Seu d’Urgell and the Cadi’s mountain range in the background, they are made from the tower of Solsona, near the Castellciutat’s castle, where there are some nice views of the valley.

The second part takes place in Main Street (Carrer Major), and the quality is not very good, but the result is not too bad considering my inexperienced and the rain. You can see the Procession of the Good Friday evening.
