Everything you can see in Cerdanya
Also called La Tosa d'Alp, it is an incredible mountain 2535 meters high located east of the Moixeró mountain range. It is located on the border between Bergadá and Baja Cerdanya, offering an incredible panoramic view that can only be surpassed by the views it offers us from the top. And if we want to go up to enjoy these spectacular views, we can do it either by the several climbing routes, with more than 600 meters of elevation, or using the Cadí-Moixeró cable car, located on one of the ski slopes in the mountain.
The capital of Cerdanya, on the banks of the Segre River and bordering 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 tourist information point, Schierbeck Park, etc.
But without a doubt, the most emblematic part is the Puigcerdá 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 large mountain barrier and for the varied vegetation of the area, with about 1,400 different species and subspecies. In addition, it has a large number of signposted routes to visit the park in any way we like, 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 popular among 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 de la Cerdanya” thanks to its strongly inclined bell tower, and the paintings of the Ingla Valley, which date from an indeterminate period between the Final Bronze Age and the Iron Age, that is, between 1500 and 700 BC. c.
The Llosa Valley:
The old Llosa valley was used in the past by smugglers and bandits. Today, it is a incredible valley half wild, barely urbanized, full of nature. If you take the route of the path, of some 3 kilometers long, 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 lakes of Muga.
This municipality is in a rather curious situation. Llívia is located in the heart of French territory, but belongs to Spain. It is a small bubble of Catalan terrain 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 Virgin of the Angels, the Bernat So tower and the Esteva pharmacy, founded in the 15th century and one of the oldest in all of Europe.
Of course, we cannot leave Cerdanya without visiting its highest peak, to 2915 meters high. But no matter how intimidating the Puigpedrós sounds, its ascent route is considered very easy, since the entire path is very marked and does not involve any technical difficulty nor does it involve any climbing. However, it has some significant climbs and slopes, so people who are not minimally physically prepared or who are not used to mountain excursions should be careful.
And these are some of the places that you absolutely have to see 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 stunning panoramic views that the area offers, you just have to choose your room either private house ideal at the Terminus hotel and start enjoying. Cerdanya awaits you!
