Tristaina Solar Viewpoint

Named the Tristaina Solar Viewpoint ideologist and promoter of the project Joan Viladomat, the architect Toni Riberaygua, the civil engineer Sergi Riba and the structural engineer Lluis Moya.  It consists of a suspended metal sphere 25 metres in diameter with a width of 1.25 metres suspended over the ground and with views of the lakes of Tristaina and the Ordino valley.

To enjoy these views, take the Tristaina gondola and then the Creussans chairlift. The first section, 10 minutes long, leaves L’Hortell and reaches the foot of the Coma restaurant: a very interesting panoramic trip. Then there is the second section, a 15-20 minute journey on the Creussans chairlift during which you can admire the natural and scenic landscape of the valley. At the top of the Creussans chairlift, a 15-20 minute walk will take you to the new viewpoint, which this year will also become the starting point for several hiking trails.

We recommend you to wear mountain shoes, appropriate for this type of terrain.

The Solar Mountain

From the Tristaina Solar Viewpoint you can see the Pic d’Arcalís, also known as the Solar Mountain, where an extraordinary natural phenomenon occurs once a year. Every 7 August at 7:37 am, and from an exact point on the same mountain, the sun is visible for three minutes through a large hole in the rocks.

This natural phenomenon was rediscovered by Bonaventura Adellach during night expeditions to the Pic d’Arcalís but it seems that ancient inhabitants of these lands already knew of its existence.
