Bagergue

This is the highest Town in the Val d’Aran, and it is perfect to visit at any time of year. If you decide to go in winter you can enjoy the snow and the white views. If you decide to go in spring or summer, the flowers and the good weather will allow you spend a few unique days in Bagergue. Its historical centre is part of the Architectural Heritage of Catalonia. We recommend that you visit the Eth Corrau museum, where you’ll discover more than 2,000 objects that

show you the artisan life of the area throughout its history. You also should go to the small hermitage of Santa Margarida and the church of San Félix. If you are thinking about going on an excursion, you can have a walk along the historic road that starts from the church and goes all the way to the Unyola River.

Puente Colgante de Rupit

Rupit y Pruit

Rupit and Pruit are two medieval centres in Osona linked by a suspension bridge, one of the main attractions in this area. You’ll be amazed to see the stone walls of the houses and the uneven, sloping streets, all of them pedestrianized.

Some religious buildings to highlight are the hermitage of Santa Magdalena, the church of Sant Miquel or the church of Sant Joan de Fàbregues.

Another attractive thing you can discover if you decide to go to Rupit and Pruit and you are interested in walking is the Sallent waterfall, a 90-metre high waterfall of “La riera de Rupit”. It’s located just 3 km away from Rupit and the walking route has no difficulties.

Besalú

Located in the region of La Garrotxa, Besalú is considered one of the best preserved medieval towns in Catalonia, with extremely impressive architecture. Its old core is considered a Cultural Asset of National Interest.

You should take a walk along the romantic bridge, which passes over the Fluvià River and through the Jewish neighbourhood. Be sure to stop at Miqvé, where you can find Spain's only traditional Jewish baths.

You can also visit the old church of the monastery of Sant Pere, the church of Sant Vicenç, the house of Cornellà and the gothic hall of La Cúria Real.
