It is an attractive and attracts many tourists because of its enviable cold waters and fresh from the mountains. No one can perform at their beauty and to your touch. Everyone who goes, decides, at one time or another, touch the water. In summer and in winter cold note even more.

As for religious buildings, Castellar de n'Hug has two churches: Santa Maria de Castellar de n'Hug and San Vicente de Rus. The first is of Roman origin and retains the four-storey belfry windows and arch, but was transformed into the neoclassical period. The second also belongs to the Romanesque, in this case located in the eleventh century with a single nave barrel vault and semicircular apse. In the outdoor decorations Lombard. Currently, is renovated and the interior are paintings XIII and XIV century.

And Asland Cement Museum located in the Clot del Moro. This old cement factory modernist built in 1901 by Eusebi Guell was converted into a museum in 1992. It was the first cement factory industry in Catalonia which operated until 1975. In 2005 it was declared a National Cultural Interest and is included in the Museum of Science and Technology of Catalonia.
