Driving from Barcelona to Lourdes - Most scenic route

We will be driving from Barcelona to Lourdes in early June 2014. Google maps plots 2 routes that are about the same mileage and take the same time.

The first route is via A-2/C-53/C-26/N-230/N125/A64 through Balaguer & Vielha.

The second is via C-16/E-9/N-20/D919/A64 through Puigcerdà.

Any recommendations as which route to drive would be appreciated.

Through Puigcerda.

You're in the mountains longer, the scenery is better, and you pass through more interesting small towns and villages.

Looking at the Michelin map of northeast Spain, both routes pass through a lot of mountains and are marked with "scenic" green lines.
