Berguedà is one of those Catalan regions where you can easily spend a few days exploring the area's myriad tourist attractions. This region encompasses the majority of the province of Barcelona and parts of the province of Lleida.
Berguedà's map is divided into two sections. The Llobregat Valley and picturesque regions such as the Cad-Moixeró mountain range are located in the northern section of the province, which is known as Alt Berguedà. Baix Berguedà is the name given to the southern part of the city, which has spectacular views of the Pyrenees and the Central Catalan Depression. It is the more populous of the two, with numerous lovely villages.
Berguedà has traditionally had a sparse population, with up to 31 municipalities (municipalities in Spanish), including the capital of Berguedà, Berga, which has the highest population because it is the most developed city.
If you want to spend a few days in the area, the first thing you need to do is figure out how to get to Berguedà. The best way to get there is by automobile, but there are other ways like taking the bus. The railway currently does not run to Berguedà, so if you wish to travel by train, you'll have to travel to Manresa or Puigcerdà and take a bus from there.
Once you arrive, there's nothing like taking a rest in any of the rustic accommodations offered in Berguedà. You'll discover a wide selection of options in this location, whether you're looking for a rural house, a flat, or a motel.
Once you've refuelled your batteries, see what there is to see in Berguedà, which we can guarantee is rather extensive. There are many areas of interest in this place, whether you enjoy nature or want to learn about the history of this area, distinguished by the industrial and mining sectors.
Starting with the rich cultural heritage, we recommend taking a tour of the various Romanesque churches and hermitages, a style that is prevalent across the province and which we urge you to see, among others, the church of San Vivenç del Rus. Furthermore, in the village of Gósol, you can visit the Picasso Centre, which features works by the artist who lived in the area for a while.
You may also visit the Fígols mines, which are open-cast and where dinosaur footprints were discovered, an experience perfect for sharing with youngsters. A visit to the Fumanya Dinosaur Centre is the best way to uncover more about its history.
If nature is your thing, there are many hiking trails in the area, and depending on your level of difficulty, you can either go to the Alt Berguedà or the Baix Berguedà. On these trails, you can see and collect mushrooms, abundant in Berguedà's landscapes and are one of the region's staple products.
Turisme del Berguedà, on the other hand, can supply you with any further information you require about the routes.
Finally, we recommend attending one of its most major festivals, La Patum. It has been designated as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and unquestionably a symbol of the region's identity. The customs performed and figures displayed are the soul of the festival typical of Berguedà.
