Caballo Berguedá

It’s difficult to imagine that within just over an hours’ drive out of Barcelona, you can find a place with so many beautiful landscapes such as Berguedá, a place where visitors can enjoy all types of activities in the heart of nature whilst relaxing in the peaceful and quiet environment that the Pyrenean foothills in Catalonia has to offer.

The region of Berguedá has an endless list of activities for visitors to make the most if its natural beauty. Thanks to an extensive network of footpaths that cover 400 kilometres, there are hikes available for people of all abilities, whether you are feeling adventurous or you want to enjoy a more leisurely walk with your family. There are different routes available depending on the time of year that you visit, but each one of them is a wonderful way to explore the second biggest national park in Catalonia, the Parque Natural del Cadi-Moixeró. These routes can also be seen by visitors on quad bikes.

Berguedá is also a wonderful place to enjoy a horse-ride, or discover the underground caves, or even explore the forests in autumn and discover the wide variety fungi. Also, the sunsets that can be seen around Berguedá are not to be missed.

Architectural Heritage

Despite the fact that nature is the principal attraction in the region of Berguedá, a visit to the villages to discover the architectural heritage is also well worth it. Here, many Roman style sights can be found, such as the Sant Juame de Frontanyá and Santa Maria de Lillet churches in La Pobla de Lillet, the Sant Llorenç monastery in Guardiola de Berguedá, the Sant Quirze de Pedret church in Cercs, the Sant Vicenç d’Obiols church in Aviá or the Santa Eulália church in Berga. The latter is the ideal place to stay whilst visiting Berguedá, as it is a place where visitors are bound to fall in love with its narrow streets and its vast history of textile production in the 18th and 19 century. From here, tourists can also enjoy the village whilst being surrounded by nature.
