Touch the sky in the Pyrenees of Barcelona
The Berguedà region is located in the north of the province in an exceptional natural environment and is a highly appreciated territory, both by lovers of high mountains and by those who want to make easier excursions.
With numerous signposted itineraries and an enormous biodiversity, the Cadí and Moixeró Mountains Natural Park offers enchanting landscapes that can be easily discovered on foot or by bicycle. Among the longest routes is the Camino de los Catharos, one of the favorite proposals for sportsmen who are fond of history, as it follows the routes used by the ancient French Cathars to seek refuge in Catalonia.

At the foot of these mountain ranges is Berga, the capital of the region, a city that has a remarkable monumental heritage. And since you are in the area, it is worth visiting the Baells reservoir and taking a dip in its waters.
