Vielha, the capital of the Val d’Aran (Pyrenees), is a small town situated at 974 metres above sea level. It has a population of about 4000 inhabitants. Surrounded by over 2000 metres high mountains, Vielha started growing in the valley, where the Garona River meets the Nere River. It borders on the Alto Aran municipality at North and East; on Vilaller, after crossing the over 5 kms. long tunnel of Vielha, at South; and on France (Alta Garona department) and the town of Es Bòrdes at West.
It is one of the main tourist points in the Pyrenees. There are modern facilities all over, including luxurious houses and apartments specially designed for you to enjoy an unforgettable winter holiday.
The new streets and buildings make up an interesting commercial area where the visitor will find all sort of shops. There are stores specializing in adventure, winter and high mountain sports, crafts and typical products from the Val d’Aran and the Pyrenees, first need goods and services, fashion shops, supermarkets and banks. There is also a modern hospital and a large sports centre with swimming pools, ice rink, a gym, etc. The wide avenues found here contrast with the old narrow streets and houses found in the old area of Vielha, where all types of restaurants and bars are gathered.
The Church of Sant Miquel, dedicated to the Saint who was also a prince, forms together with the Town Hall, the Tourist Information Office and the Post Office, the town centre. Inside the Church is possible to see the valuable sculpture of the Cristo de Mijaran.
