Abella de la Conca is having a new lease of life thanks to a not-for profit association (Abella Climb) established to develop a sustainable approach to outdoor activities like rock climbing, mountain biking, walking and permaculture based land management.
Behind Enzo Oddo’s ironic humour you’ll discover outstanding Verdonesque limestone, soaring rock arches, rare black vultures, one shoe ascents, breathtaking landscapes, hot saunas, cooling pools and the generous locals who share their beautiful village with us.
This special place, an all year destination, is one that’s very hard to leave…
