Many works by Antoni Gaudí, emblematic monuments and buildings, beautiful beaches, natural parks, important cities… These are just some of the attractions of the province of Barcelona, although many times we only focus on its capital, the city of Barcelona.
Like in Hard Hobbit To Break It does not seem very fair to us that Barcelona is always the protagonist, today we have decided to show you some of the most beautiful towns that can be found in Barcelona. Of course, we apologize in advance for all those that we have not included. Do you want to join us?
The first municipality on our list is Rupit i Pruït, which is located in the region of Osona. Actually, it is made up of two villages that are characterized by their stone constructions, maintaining the medieval charm. But what makes it special is not only this, but the Collsacabra landscape by which it is framed. The remains of the castle, the baroque church of San Miguel and the wooden suspension bridge stand out.
We continue our tour of the most beautiful towns in the province of Barcelona in the region of Bages, where we find Cardona, a municipality located on the banks of the Cardoner River, in a valley of central Catalonia. With an important medieval past, the place is most picturesque, highlighting the walled fortress of its castle, which is located on a hill.
It could not be missing from the Sitges list which, located between the sea and the mountains, offers tourists a lot of opportunities to leisure, in addition to beautiful natural landscapes. Although here you can find golf courses, modern water facilities and luxury developments, it also has an interesting town center.
We return to the province of Bages to discover Mura, a charming town at the entrance to the Sant Llorenç de Munt Natural Park. Despite being a large town, there is very little population, so you can find many farmhouses and areas rustic. In addition, it should be borne in mind that it is surrounded by mountain ranges and deep valleys with abundant vegetation.
From Bages we moved to the Osona region, where Tavertet is located, a town located on top of a rock and next to a precipice. With views of the mountains of the Montseny and the Sau reservoir, the town was declared a Site of Cultural Interest, among other things because its houses were built between the 17th and 18th centuries and because it houses some Romanesque monuments.
Castellar de n’Hug
Located in the Berguedà region, the town of Castellar de n’Hug stands out for its castle, although it should also be borne in mind that the sources of the Llobregat. Other points of interest are the church of Santa Maria de Castellar de n’Hug, the church of Sant Vicenç de Rus and the Asland cement factory, which today is the Cement Museum.
Nor could Vic be missing from this list, which is the capital of the Osona region. Located on the banks of the Meder river and very close to the Sau reservoir, it houses an impressive urban area chaired by a notable Cathedral. Other emblematic places of the municipality are the Palau Episcopal, the Plaza Mayor, the Roman temple, the church of La Pietat and the convent of Sant Domènech.
Castellet i la Gornal
Finally, we want to talk about Castellet and la Gornal, a town located in the Alt Penedés region, a few kilometers from Sitges and Vilanova y la Geltrú. Located in front of the Foix Natural Park, it is surrounded by a beautiful landscape, further embellished by the Castellet castle.
