El Ripollès is a mountain region, located in the Girona Pyrenees, located 100 km from Barcelona and 80 km from the Costa Brava. It is made up of the Vall de Ribes, Valle de Camprodon and Baix Ripollès, encompassing the 19 towns that dot the territory, most of them of medieval origin.

The mountains of the Pyrenees and the two rivers that cross it from north to south, the Ter and the Freser, give their name to the Capçaleres del Ter y del Freser Natural Park, a magnificent high mountain area in the heart of the Girona Pyrenees with 14,725 ha. with peaks such as Puigmal or Bastiments, touching 3000 m. Tall.

Valleys, rivers, mountains, charming towns will allow you to enjoy the entire region. Come and discover it!

Heritage

Visit the Ripollès heritage, a territory with a great historical and cultural past, considered the "Bressol de Catalunya", with more than 98 monuments of Romanesque art in the Pyrenees distributed among the 19 towns in the region. We highlight the Monastery of Sant Joan de las Abadesses, which houses the Most Holy Mystery; the 12th century portal of the Monastery of Santa Maria de Ripoll, a candidate to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and the Monastery of Sant Pere and the Puente Nuevo de Camprodon. We must also highlight the Romanesque church of Sant Jaume de Queralbs, the front of the altar of Sant Esteve de Llanars or the church of Santa Cecília de Molló, as well as the Santuario de Montgrony or Vallfogona de Ripollès, a small rural town and its medieval nucleus. You also have to see Dòrria and Beget, declared a Historic and Artistic Heritage Site (BCIN).
