In the heart of the Catalonian Pyrenees there is the Alt Pirineu Natural Park, the largest natural park in Catalonia, a rugged landscape of peaks that tower above forests, grassy meadows, peaceful lakes and wild rivers and streams.
In the heart of the Alt Pirineu Natural Park there is the town of Alins, and between the warren of little streets of Alins, it is possible to appreciate a cup of Pyrenees herbal tea in the interesting bookshop, NaturaLlibres – something like Nature Books -.
But, to be honest, NaturaLlibres is more, much more than a bookshop.
Beside Mountain Guidebooks and maps, you can find a subtle selection of Nature, Travel, History and Ecology books, a special collection of books that reflects the owner’s outstanding expertise.
I spent a couple of days there, taking short hikes and pictures in the morning and participating in lively literature discussions in the evening.
