Camprodón, in the Ripollés district of the province of Girona, is one of the most picturesque and well-known towns in the Catalan Pyrenees. On the banks of the rivers Ter and Ritort, there is no better site to spend your rural tourism holidays.
What kind of history does Camprodón have? To begin, we can inform you that this is the birthplace of the legendary composer Isaac Albéniz, who has a museum dedicated to him. In addition, the Birba biscuit factory, which is well-known in the region, is located in this settlement.
Although it was constructed in the 12th century, the Puente Nuevo (New Bridge) allows access to many key locations in the town, including the church of Santa Maria and the lovely Passeig de Maristany, which is particularly lovely in the autumn.
The Monastery of San Pedro, which gives the municipality its name, is a must-see. The entire Camprodón Valley's population began to grow around this region.
In the surrounding area, you may explore charming villages like Rocabruna, which has a castle, or Beget, which is one of Catalonia's most beautiful and least congested due to its geographical location.
And what if you want to be more active on your trip? Hiking is the activity we propose because it allows you to take in the picturesque Pyrenean landscapes that the valley offers.
When it is time to unwind, there are a variety of options. There are hotels, flats, and rural cottages in the municipality. You will be able to find accommodation that meets your requirements.
What kind of cuisine can you sample? Longaniza sausage, ham, and bull (morcón) sausages are particularly popular in this region. Biscuits are also a huge sale here, as we indicated previously, thanks to the manufacturing unit.
A grand celebration in honour of Sant Patllari (or San Paladio in Spanish) takes place on June 21. Liturgical and traditional celebrations with music, dancing, and enjoyable activities are held too.
With a few days in this rustic location in the Camprodón Valley, you may discover all the charms of the Catalan Pyrenees.
