Port de Filià is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.404m (7,887ft) above the sea level, located in the province of Lleida, in Catalonia, Spain. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
The road to the summit is rocky and gravel. It’s a chairlift access trail of the ruined Vallfosca Interllacs Esquí Resort. The slope is very steep, consists of loose stones and becomes even steeper and rocky in the upper part. The peak links the villages of Sarroca de Bellera and la Torre de Cabdella. This trail can be done only a very narrow time-frame in the summer (end of August). The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. Located in Vall Fosca valley, the temperatures here in the winter are brutally cold. The road to the summit is a ski-station service road pretty steep, with some sections up to 30%.
