In December 2015 UNESCO joined the Summer Solstice Festivities in the Pyrenees to the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity; a fact that promoted the creation of the present chair and that made this festival one of the main lines of action of the same.



The people and the wildlife of the Pyrenees share a single space, a unique and wide territory. This coexistence deserves to be recognized as an enriching element, and it must be worked from all levels of society.


Certain traditions and testimonies of the Pyrenees have been lost or are being recovered recently. The chair is intended to collaborate in the dissemination of these and their promotion in order to revitalize the Pyrenean territory. Saint Lliser’s Path and the Cathar route through Pallars are the two projects on which we are working.
