La Vall Ferrera Pallars Sobirà
Araós is situated at 913m and it’s the first village you will found if you come to the Vall Ferrera.

In front of the village, there is the forest of Virós which concerns the most recent nordic skiing station in the catalonian Pirineu. The romanic building of the Sant Esteve church and the visigoth hermitage of Sant Francesc are placed in Araós. If you go up along the forest of Virós, you will find the romanic hermitage of Sant Lliser de Virós, the ruins of a fortlet and some medieval homes.
