Tavertet

Province: Barcelona | Shire: Osona | Inhabitants: 148 | Extension: 32,5 Km2 | Altitude: 869 m

Tavertet, raised on a huge cliff of 200 meters, was a favorable place for primitive human settlement. The vestiges of the Neolithic period, the megalithic tomb, the field of funeral urns and the Iberian wall are testimony to a remarkable prehistoric activity. Facing this is the cliff of Tavertet, which falls with a contrast of colors and a breathtaking panorama, which can be seen from the viewpoint of the town and represents one of the most emblematic and beautiful images of the territory.

At the present time, the urban nucleus conserves 48 native houses built between the XVII and XVIII centuries, which form a harmonious whole interesting enough for it to have been declared an Asset of Cultural Interest by a resolution of the Department of Culture of the Generalitat de Catalunya. Around the historic town new buildings are added following the patterns of traditional construction; Ancient and modern make up a harmonious architectural ensemble.

Tavertet is considered one of the most touristic points of the area for its tranquility and isolation, the town offers us a magnificent panorama in the Valley of Sau and the Guilleries.

Tavertet is located on a massif of sedimentary eocene sedimentary materials that form a high tabular platform, with vertical cliffs of more than 200 m. Riscos, caves are complemented by river currents that often turn into waterfalls of extraordinary beauty.

Wildlife remains sufficiently nourished so that it becomes visible to the eyes of the nature scholar. The vegetation is very abundant, with compact forests of oak, oak, beech and pine, as well as other types of trees and shrubs. Copious small plants and herbs have just configured a vegetation of more than 400 different flower species.
