The Neighbourhood

The Natural Park of Cadí-Moixeró
One of the largest natural parks of Catalonia goes from 800 to 2600m and has its information centre in nearby Bagà. We can find here hiking routes, ice climbing and alpinism.

The Llobregat sources

The impressive source of one of the main rivers of Catalonia, the Llobregat, pours out the water with pressure.

The “Riera de Merlès”
A river with many natural enormous bathtubs which allow swimming and are very popular in summer.

La Pobla de Lillet

A former industrial village (mining, textile, paper, cement, etc.) that is looking for a new way to live, probably tourism. The glorious past left some precious reminiscences such as a park and a chalet of Gaudí (yes, the one from Barcelona), a modernistic factory that is being restored (in fact on the lower part of Castellar de n’Hug), a touristic train on the old small track, mines in the Catllaràs and (not too) impressive villa’s.
We will also find remindings of the medieval past of La Pobla, like the Castle (now on hire for vacations), the strangely restored abbey and several age old farms (like Ardericó) and hermitages.

The medieval centre of Bagà recalls the times when it was the capital of the barony of Pinós, the barons of which simpathized with the Catars.

Castellar de n'Hug
A beautiful high mountain village (1600m) with a long tourist tradition (hotels, restaurants, museums, etc.)

Sant Jaume de Frontanyà
It maintains its traditional rural architecture and personality. A charming Romanic church crowns the smallest village of Catalonia in number of inhabitants.

In this other old settlement we can find the Castle of a character of the middle age, the duke Arnau and a sanctuary near an important alpinism zone with the same name (Montgrony).

This little medieval town is considered the crib of Catalonia.

Another medieval town that has many things to offer. Its ancestral spring celebration, la Patum, was declared Patrimony of the Humanity by the UNESCO.
