Do you know that the area surrounding the Camarasa reservoir has a special archaeological importance?
The Camarasa route is an alternative plenty of attractions for those who know the kayaking routes in Congost de Mont-Rebei or Terradets. The Camarasa route passes near two World Heritage Sites: the Balma del Pantà and the Cova del Tabac, on the right side of Segre river. Both are archaeological sites due to its cave art.
The Camarasa lake has this name due to the village, which is located 12 kilometres from Balaguer, the capital of the region of La Noguera (Lleida). During the kayaking route, you can observe some interesting heritage elements, such as the Baronia de Sant Oïsme, with its cylindrical tower of the castle, or the Romanesque Church of Sant Miquel, in Fontllonga; which gives a cultural value to this adventure activity.
