Benante is the smallest sector of the municipality, formed by scattered houses and a small nucleus near the church of Sant Lliser.

It is located between the Ribera highway in Tavascan and the Noguera de Cardós river. Between the houses and the Walnut tree, the game of Lo Rengar extends, a great extension of meadows that refer to a traditional economy based on the breeding of cattle and wool, complemented with orchards and crops of potatoes, alfalfa and cereals.

The population is at 970m altitude and there are only 5 inhabitants that live all year round.


Ginestarre is the town located to the north of the municipality and at 1,364m altitude.

It is 1, 5 km from Esterri de Cardós and 5.5 km from the main road that goes up the Vall de Cardós.

The small village occupies the upper part of the northern slope of the Esterri valley, and therefore enjoys a fantastic panoramic view of the valley. There are many houses in ruins due to depopulation.

The village currently has 8 inhabitants that live there all year round.

An important aspect of this small village is the Santa María Romanesque church, and a textile craft workshop.
