It is only a very small village... but regional border between Aragon and Catalonia crosses the village.

In most of area around, the border is on the river but there are some points where both sides are from Catalonia, or both sides are from Aragon. This is one of them, and with a village located in both sides of the river... approaching until the border.

In the photo:

- Farm on the right is in Aragon
- vegetable Garden on the left is in Aragon
- House in the centre is in Catalonia.
- Lane close to the house is in Catalonia
- The car... I do not know. Maybe in the border





The village has a little more than 100 people. People living in the aragonese part have the town hall just there. People living in the catalan part (only a few houses) have their town hall... about 30 km away. At all administrative affairs, they live at Catalonia, and just they live very close to an Aragonese village.

Village town hall is really very small. And has no flags on it. Aragonese and Catalan flags are very similar but in the town hall neither Spanish flag, nor Aragonese flag are there.
They only indication to know where in the border is that village is because a plate in the main square that indicates when it was opened and that Aragonese president was present there that day.


And more... there is a pedestrian bridge from the village to the main road, but going by car to the rest of Aragon from the village requires going through a little part of a catalan road
and to arrive the catalan houses there from anywhere from Catalonia you can choose going by road and crossing the village (entering at Aragon for a while, so then) or crossing a lot of country lanes.


In the villages there are no lines about the border. There are some rocks that helps to know where the border is... but you should have to ask, because they are a little hidden.

Canton of Zug welcome sign, entering it on A4 motorway from the south.
The lake symbolizes the Lake of Zug, which is bordered by the cantons of Zug, Schwyz and Lucerne.

Ancient border markings between the state of Saxonia (Sachsen) and the prussian province of Silesia (Schlesien) nearby Görlitz. Not an actual border anymore but still interesting. Wonder how those stones survived 41 years of GDR...

Lower Saxony/Saxony-Anhalt border. This place was a proper international border some time ago and was called Checkpoint Alpha.



Red mark shows the exact location of the Memorial to the former border between two German countries.




A2 in the background.


Those trucks carried really remote number plates. Mostly from Kyrgystan and Russia.










There is a kind of annoying feeling there whilst walking around. It's like..hmm..ghost and banshees of ex-stasi bandits were still watching yooooou.

Wow, Kingdom of Saxony, was that border stone reestablished after 1990 or has it really survived 40 years of GDR?

I think the border stone was reestablished after 1990.
In the forests there are some old border stones with Kingdom of Saxony and Fürstentum Reuss Greiz
I have an other picture from a "Wanderweg" and there is a mistake on it

The sign looks new, they might have replaced an old one

A Swiss cantonal tripoint: cantons of Zürich, Saint-Gall and Schwyz come together at the "lake dam" of Zurich Lake.

Photo taken in May 2012. Unfortunately the SG flag is not on the pic, but you see its mast
