Everything you can see in La Cerdanya
Also called La Tosa d'Alp, it is an incredible 2535 meter high mountain located to the east of the Sierra de Moixeró. It is located on the border between Bergadá and Baja Cerdanya, offering an incredible panorama that can only be surpassed with the views that it offers us from the top. And if we want to go up to enjoy these spectacular views, we can do it both for the various routes of ascent, with more than 600 meters of unevenness, or using the Cadí-Moixeró gondola, located on one of the ski slopes on the mountain.
The capital of the Cerdanya, on the banks of the Segre river and on the border with France. In it, apart from appreciating the beautiful and colorful views that it offers us, we have multiple places to visit, such as the Plaza de Santa Maria, which is the nerve center of the town, the bell tower, which today has been converted into a a tourist information point, the Schierbeck park, etc.
But without a doubt, the most emblematic part is the Puigcerda lake, which is visited every year by tourists from all over, either to navigate it with boats or simply to enjoy and photograph the beautiful natural picture that it forms with the landscape.
Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park:
One of the largest natural spaces in all of Catalonia. It is known for the mountain ranges in the area that create a great mountainous barrier and for the varied vegetation in the area, with some 1,400 different species and subspecies. In addition, it has a large number of marked routes to visit the park in the way that we most want, whether on foot, on horseback or by bicycle.
One of the largest municipalities in the region, full of a multitude of architectural elements and buildings, many of them declared as Asset of Cultural Interest by UNESCO. The most frequented by both locals and visitors are the Church of Santa María de Talló, the Romanesque Church of Santa Eugénia de Nerellà, considered by many “the tower of Pisa in Cerdanya” thanks to its strongly inclined bell tower, and the paintings from Valle del Ingla, dating from an indeterminate period between the Late Bronze Age and the Iron Age, that is, between 1500 and 700 BC. c.
The valley of the Llosa:
The old valley of La Llosa was used in the past by smugglers and bandits. Today it is a amazing valley wild environment, barely urbanized full of nature. If you take the route of the path, about 3 kilometers in length, you can explore the vast majority of the charming valley. In the right area of this, we can find a set of small lakes called the muga lakes.
This municipality is in a rather curious situation. Llívia is in full French territory, but belongs to Spain. It is a small bubble of Catalan land within France, which makes Llívia the only Spanish municipality that is located in a foreign country.
In the past, the Romans chose it as their capital, which means that today we can find numerous archaeological remains in the area. It also has an old town, with the Church of the Virgen de los Ángels, the Bernat So tower and the esteva pharmacy, founded in the fifteenth century and one of the oldest in all of Europe.
Of course, we cannot leave Cerdanya without visiting its highest peak, a 2915 meters high. But as intimidating as the Puigpedrós sounds, its ascent route is considered very easy, since the entire path is very marked and does not pose any technical difficulty or have any climbing. However, it has some significant ascents and slopes, so people who are not physically prepared or who are not used to hiking in the mountains should be careful.
And these are some of the places that you have to see if or when you visit Cerdanya. It is, without a doubt, a natural and historical paradise. So now you know, if you want to discover ancient history and marvel at the natural views and scandalous panoramic views that the area offers, you just have to choose your room either private house ideal in the Terminus hotel and start enjoying. La Cerdanya awaits you!
