The Era Restanca is a reservoir at just below 2,000 metres in the National Park of Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici, a harmonious ensemble of sharp peaks, spectacular mountain ridges, lush forests, green meadows, rivers and more than 200 lakes. The refuge Refugi Dera Restanca is located by the reservoir, a popular base for hikes in the high mountains in this spectacular National Park.
