Exploring Barcelona’s surrounding areas: La Mussara, the region’s most fearsome town

By | 11 September, 2020 | 0 comments

Visiting Barcelona offers an endless amount of fantastic options for travellers. From the great weather, extensive seafront walks, unbeatable cuisine and a front row seat to world history and culture to pleasant strolls through the Gothic Quarter and the opportunity to soak up some of the masterpieces gifted to the world by Gaudí. All this and more means Barcelona has become one of the most popular cosmopolitan cities that’s simply perfect for visiting any time of year.

La Mussara

But we’re always looking to give you new ways of discovering everything Barcelona has to offer, as well as its surrounding areas. Today, we’re going to take a trip to La Mussara, ever heard of it?

La Mussara, something different when you next visit Barcelona

For those of you who love breaking free of the traditional sights and sounds, consider a visit to La Mussara, a small town in Tarragona where you can experience something truly terrifying, where there are still plenty of mysteries to be solved.

A town nestled at an altitude of 990m above sea level with phenomenal views over Tarragona, La Mussara has stood unpopulated since 1959 and contains 8 separate ruins beneath its hazy fog. Every corner of the town sleeps under the quiet murmur of endless myths and legends, including the fate of its inhabitants who disappeared without a trace, and what really happened in this mystical place!

Round off your visit with a tour of the Prades mountains

A hair-raising tour between these mid-level mountains is suitable for the bravest hikers willing to scale the heights of the Prades mountains, surrounded by intriguing slopes and lush natural landscapes, beginning with the Camino de las Tosques, which can be extended all the way to Avencs de la Febró.

This stunning part of the world certainly aroused the curiosity of Iker Jiménez, an expert on the supernatural, who famously experienced the satanic vibrations and inverted crosses of the town’s spectacular Church of San Cristóbal and lived to tell the tale. Will you?
