Gaia is a municipality located north of the county of Bages, bordering Berguedà. By its end pass the Llobregat River and the streams of Merlès, Cornet and Gaia. The municipality of Gaia is made ??by the entity that has the same name and that of Galera, located on the left bank of the Llobregat and goodbye to visitors who leave Bages Berguedà to enter through the Llobregat.

Within the district find an entourage of constructions, most of them are religious and were built during the Middle Ages. Examples are Gaia Castle, built between the ninth and tenth centuries remains a symbol of the Hispanic and today only the remains that are located on the rise there before coming to the chapel of St. Agatha . It is located on the highest point of the top bearing the same name and is located where once stood a part of the wall that was the old castle.

Continuing with the religious elements find the church of Sant Andreu del Genescar that has undergone various changes that have significantly changed their initial appearance. It is located next to the farmhouse of Genescar. Sant Esteve de Vilamaró or Serralet is a Romanesque chapel which like the previous one has undergone several modifications. The same case goes with the chapel of Sant Jordi in Lloberes.

The church of Sant Pere de Monistrol, of the Rock or Solara is the same building. It was a small monastery that ended Visigothic becoming a rural chapel until they ended up losing the roof and which are preserved today only four walls.

In modern times we have other evidence as the church of Santa Maria de Gaia with a mixture of styles: Renaissance and Baroque. There is also the comunidor Santa Maria de Gaia, is a small, square enclosure open to the four winds and it was used by the monks to pray during storms and avoid mishaps. It is important because it is one of the few such buildings remaining in Catalonia. We can not forget either of the Rectory of St. Mary of Gaia or the church of Sant Bartomeu Vall de Vilamaró.

By making reference to the natural environment, Gaia has different sources and pine and Balma Esplugues them located near the farmhouse of the Vall de Vilamaró and has about 300m2 and from where fresh water. For many years it became a haven for bandits and beggars.
