The natural space of the Mont-rebei Gorge (El Pallars Jussà -La Noguera) has an approximate extension of 600 hectares. It was acquired by the Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera (in its stage of Territory and Landscape Foundation) in 1999 with the objective of preserving its natural and landscape values. For the most part it is included within the space of natural interest (PEIN) of the Montsec and is also bordered by the Parcial Natural Reserve of the Mont-rebei Gorge. On April 14, 2005, the Mont-rebei Gorge has been declared Wildlife Refuge.
The Mont-rebei gorge that forms the Noguera Ribagorçana river as it crosses the Montsec mountain range separates the Montsec d’Ares from the Montsec de l’Estall and is the only gorge in Catalonia that remains more or less virgin without any intersection road, rail or power line. You only cross a horseshoe path partially dug in the rock that allows you to enjoy a very spectacular way of this place. The walls of the defile reach a maximum of 500 meters of vertical fall with points where the minimum width of the gorge is only 20 meters.
