The Pyrenees: Places to Explore

Sort

The capital of the Pallars Sobirà (Upper Pallars Valley) is the area’s epicenter for skiing, fishing, and white-water kayaking. The word sort is Catalan for "luck" and its local lottery shop, La Bruixa d’Or (The Gold Witch), has recently become a tourist attraction by living up to the town’s name and selling more than an average number of winning tickets. Don't be fooled by the town you see from the main road: one block back, Sort is honeycombed with tiny streets and protected corners built to stave off harsh winter weather.
