The Villa de Bagà is located in the heart of the Pyrenees, at the northern end of Alt Berguedà, on the edge of the province of Barcelona at 786 meters above sea level and 20 km from Berga, 28 km from Puigcerdà and 6 km from the southern mouth of the Cadí tunnel.

Thus, the Villa de Bagà is considered the historical capital of Alt Berguedà and is currently the economic engine of this entire area with infrastructures as important as the institute, which welcomes students from all the towns in the north of the region, the Medieval Center. and of the Cathars, located in the Palace of the Barons of Pinoso, which has become the nerve center of the Route of the Camino de los Buenos Hombres, or the alpine ski slopes of Coll de Pal.

Historically, Bagà is one of the most important centers in the Pre-Pyrenees area that during the medieval period was under the dominion and, in fact, also its creation, of the barons of Pinós. Its urban structure starts from a large porticoed plaza, where we find the church and the Pinoso Palace, in the process of restoration. In fact, medieval history is what predominates and, in turn, gives life to the municipality, since different events are held to remember certain aspects and also show it to visitors.

Of these events we highlight the Festivities of the Barony of Pinós, within which we find guided tours, concerts, conferences, etc. On the same dates (mid-July) the Bagà Medieval Market, the Traditional Crafts Demonstration Fair and the Berguedà Gastronomic Show of Agri-Food Producers coincide. Likewise, notable within these celebrations is the representation made of the legend of the payment of a tribute by Galceran de Pinós known as " The Rescue of the 100 Maidens."

On Christmas Eve, Bagà also becomes a party. It is the well-known “ Fia-faia ” in which the villagers burn torches (called faies) from a fire lit at the top of a mountain located to the west of the town. From there the burning haies descend, forming a path of fire, until reaching the Plaza de Bagà. There the fire is distributed to the rest of the villagers and dances are held around it.

Another important festival in Bagà is the Rice Festival, which is celebrated on the second Sunday of the month of February. While waiting for the rice to be cooked, demonstrations of the Ball Cerdà are made to which everyone can add. They have considered that this is a way to maintain and make this tradition last.
