The Carlit 50 Lakes itinerary runs through a high mountain area that is homogeneous at an orographic and landscape level, but quite diverse at a geographical, administrative, and historical level. It crosses a large number of natural interest places, protected by its high environmental value, the fauna diversity that they host, and the high landscape interest that has made it one of the most visited areas of the Eastern Pyrenees. Let’s get to know these places in a bit more depth.
Historical and cultural environment
During the crossing we will be between the French departments of the Eastern Pyrenees and the Midi-Pyrénées, or what is the same, between the Catalan Countries and Occitania, between the counties of Alta Cerdanya, Capcir (Northern Catalonia) and the Haut Ariège (Occitania). Despite being a historical zone of linguistic transition, where the Catalan and Occitan languages had so many features in common that they were confused, the etymological differences are already glimpsed by analyzing their toponymy.
