By | 18 February, 2019 | 0 comments

Losing yourself in the unmistakable beauty of nature and all its sights and sounds is always a joyous experience, but strolling through these green pastures full of oak and pine trees, resplendent no matter what time of year you visit, accompanied by the delicate birdsong and a gentle murmur of the trickling streams, seamlessly mingling with the peace and quiet of the forest is something else entirely – and something you can enjoy all year round in the Berguedá countryside! At HCC Ciutat de Berga, we’ll give you everything you need to make your stay in this beautiful former textile region all you could hope for and more.

Caballo Berguedá

As a destination, Berguedá offers countless scenic attractions, as plentiful as they are varied, alongside some incredibly diverse and enchanting forests and mountains. The pleasure of walking through its stunning landscapes and some of the most important natural treasures in the whole of Spain is an experience that just can’t be beaten.  In Sierra de Queralt, pináceas share the stage with enormous beech trees to form the perfect setting for a great mountain hike. And at the mountain’s summit, 1,200m above sea level, you’ll find the Queralt Sanctuary.  Around three quarters of an hour’s walk from Berga, the Sanctuary provides a picture-postcard setting with luscious green surroundings and leafy trees, all in a landscape of sharp peaks and calcareous rocks, where you might even stumble upon the Virgen de Queralt temple. You can also reach the beauty of the Sanctuary by cable car, where you can take in the breath-taking views of the Sierra below.

The Berguedá region’s various attractions and beautiful countryside also make it a popular destination for mountaineering. In this part of the Barcelona region, mountaineers will find a stunning place to explore inPedraforca Mountain.  Its two summits are perfect for a day’s adventure as you explore the Parque Natural del Cadí-Moixeró Mountain, a nature park where rich and diverse flora and fauna find their true home, putting nature front and centre in all its wonderful splendour.

Alongside the stunning Berguedá scenery, no trip here would be complete without exploring the region’s textile heritage, an industry that was built around the river that flows from Berga to Balsareny, as well as some great Romanesque jewels, such as the Sant Vicenç de Rus Church, Sant Jaume de Frontanyà Monastery, Santa María de Aviá Church, as well as Sant Quirze de Pedret Church. A whole range of options for enjoying the Berguedá countryside are ready and waiting for your next truly unique escape to the country.
