Pujalt is a small municipality in the region of Anoia, it is located in the center of Catalonia, on the border of the province of Barcelona and playing with the region of La Segarra. Its situation in the Catalan Central Depression gives wide panoramic views of the Pyrenees, the crests of Montserrat, the Sierras de Pinós and Boixadors and the Plans d'Urgell. The municipality is formed by five nuclei: l'Astor, Conill, La Guàrdia Pilosa, Vilamajor and Pujalt. It has an area of 31.72 km2 with a total of two hundred inhabitants, but, despite being a small municipality, it stands out in the area due to the numerous activities that are carried out. Each of these nuclei has its own identity and the city council has taken advantage of it and has supported all kinds of activities that add to this effort.
