5 Routes for Discovering the Landscapes of the Berguedá Region

By | 24 May, 2017 | 0 comments

The Berguedá region takes in more than a thousand square kilometres and the entire essence of the Catalan Pre-Pyrenees region. The landscape is marked by three key elements – water, limestone rock and vegetation – combined in different proportions to give the very best picture of this part of the Barcelona province. The northern area is characterised by lower mountains surrounding the river Llobregat. To the south, the rivers have carved out a more rugged landscape of their own from the high mountains. Both areas combined create an extraordinary landscape where you’ll discover the charms of Berguedá and can enjoy various sports and outdoor activities.fonts-del-llobregat
