Art and Romanesque
There are nine Romanesque churches in the Vall de Boí­ that have been incorporated into UNESCO's World Heritage Trust. There is also a Centre for the study and interpretation of Romanesque heritage at Erill la Vall.

Other artistic heritage spots of great interest are located in the villages of El Pont de Suert with its monastery's ruins of Lavaix, with its fine collection of sacred art, Vilaller with its Roman bridge and wall, and the Aragonese Ribagorça area with its Romanesque art treasures.
We are 20 km away from the Thermal Spa resort of Caldes de Boí.
Llesp is ideally situated as a nodal point for many rambling routes recently recovered or in the process of being reclaimed. It is a centre for undertaking numerous activities. We are in the path of the Water Route (Camí­ de l'Aigua) that runs between Pont de Suert and Caldes de Boí­. We are also a staging post for the Pedals de Foc bike's route (Pedals of Fire).

Within a radius of 20 km you will find a plethora of beauty spots such as The National Park of Aigüestortes, Posets-Maladeta in Aragon, the Vall de Besiberri or the Cavallers Dam, one of the best and most visited climbing areas of the country. The Salencar Park is a mere 5 km away in Barruera. Pont de Suert is yet another point for many trekking routes and lovely walks. Bird watchers can visit the bearded vulture's natural habitat around Escales, where you can practice nautical sports, and the Vall de Barraves.
Mushroom picking (autumn) is something of a national pastime in Catalonia and this area is one of the top spots for it. ()
Fairs and Festivals
There are many autumn fairs such as in Barruera, Pont de Suert and Villaler.

In addition to it, many music festivals and more traditional happenings, for example the spectacular Descending Fires in June and July, take place in the summer.
Snow and Sports
We are close to the well known ski-resort of Boí­-Taüll.

It is possible to practice other sports too; cycling, fishing, hunting, rafting, horse riding, trekking, rock-climbing, mountain bike, snow rackets to name but just a few.
