3 routes through the Anoia

3 routes through the Anoia

Anoia is a region to rediscover, and the best way is to do it on foot. Its still agricultural landscape invites you to calm down and look at the horizon. Be impressed by its towers and castles, get close to it, visit them and go through the history of its protagonists. We propose 3 routes suitable for the whole family.

1. From Vilanova del Camí to Collbàs and Claramunt castle

Circular route from Vilanova del Camino to the hermitage of Collbàs with a mandatory stop at the Castle of Claramunt, a medieval watchtower over the Anoia region that preserves an impressive fortress appearance and can be visited. In 2009, Claramunt Castle received the Catalunya Nuestra award in the category of "public castles", which rewards the best proposals for restoration and revitalization of the country's castles. In fact, it is in this place that festivals as popular as the Aplec del Castillo, in May, or the Anoia Folk music festival, in July, are held. When you climb the Sierra de Collbàs, you will also come across the hermitage of the Virgen de Collbàs dating from the 13th century. In total, it is about 4 and a half hours that you can also do by bike.

2. Route of the battle of the Meadows

Circular route through the scenes of one of the most important and numerous battles of the War of Succession that took place in the 18th century. The route also passes through the Manresana tower and the water wells that played an important role in this battle. A proposal of just over 4 hours with little unevenness and suitable for the whole family. In Prats del Rey you can also visit the José Castellano Museum that collects the remains found in this urban nucleus both from the time of the Iberians and from the Roman town, called Sigarra, which would be at the origin of the current population. A corner that allows you to see the succession of cultures in our territory on the border with the current region of La Segarra.

3. From San Juan in Sant Quintí de Mediona

An easy and familiar proposal near Anoia (the municipalities are from the Penedès, on the border with Anoia), ideal to go with the little ones because it is an entertaining tour, with stops to discover rocky formations and the landscape of the gorge. Between San Juan and Sant Quintí de Mediona, a simple route, of 3 hours and 40 minutes and almost 15 kilometers. If you dare, you can also visit the old town of Sant Quintí de Mediona and, in fact, it will not be difficult for you to coincide with a local festival. The calendar of this town is full of popular activities: the flower carpets, the living nativity scenes and various traditional festivals that take place throughout the year. The one with the most renown is the Mata-Degolla fair, which is the recreation of one of the bloodiest episodes that the residents of the town staged during the War of Succession.
