El Pallars Sobirà

The district division of 1936 established the division of Pallars into two districts: Pallars Sobirà, which occupies the northern part (Sobirà means superior in Castilian) and Pallars Jussà (inferior), the southern one. The regional division restored after the establishment of the autonomy of Catalonia (1987), respected this division, according to the old County of Pallars Sobirà.
