Between ‘Faros’

Good views, tradition and culture in a half-day walking tour. This is what the “Between Faros” walk offers, taking you through a number of towns of the Boí Valley.

And what are faros? During the Falles de la Vall celebration the faros are the places where the fallaires, or torch bearers, burn a black pine, planted weeks prior, and begin to descend to the towns carrying the falles, a kind of torch, on their backs.

The route begins in Boí and passes along the Pago trail towards Durro, finally going down to Barruera stopping by the respective faros of each town.

The Falles festival declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO is held in the Boí Valley from mid-June to the end of July.

When: From 17 June to the end of July

Organized by: Boí Valley Tourism Board
