Gombrèn is a municipality in the Ripollès formed by the Cortal, Aranyonet, Montgrony and the entity that bears the same name, Gombrèn. It is located more than 900m high and borders the municipalities of northeastern Berguedà.

We found Grombrèn documented since 918 and we can see that keeps its medieval structure in the distribution of the streets of the town, where we find the urban fabric in the streets of the Porxos. In the religious area find the chapel for Our Lady of Lourdes, located in El Cortal, and Sant Joan de Mata, we found our way to Montgrony. Besides the churches of Sant Martí de Puigbó, located at 1.120m altitude and eighteenth century, the parish church of Sant Pere de Gombrèn and Sant Pere de Montgrony. In addition, we also find the most iconic Shrine of the municipality, the Mare de Deu de Montgrony. It is located in the middle of a cliff of the mountain bearing the same name and about 1.380m altitude. Its construction is the seventeenth century and is situated about 15km from Gombrèn.

In 1985 it was discovered Mataplana Castle is located in the middle of a valley Ripollès. In archaeological terms has discovered the castle and the Annex habitat where the lords lived but popular and traditional level, the discovery is closely linked to different versions that make up the legend of Count Arnau. It is for this reason that in Gombrèn also find the Museu del Comte Arnau, as his legend is born in this land. Here we found different archaeological, literary, mythological and historical Mataplana family related.

In the natural terrain, Gombrèn also has fantastic spaces as Banyuts dels Gorg a river or stream Sant Forat Ou cave of 74m deep with a fairly large final room that served to Count Arnau to go to the caves of Ribes.
