Routes and itineraries

The mining industry has left the valley marked by evidence of human activity, of which the Asland del Clot del Moro cement factory is a remaining example. It can be visited together with the Catllaràs chalet, works by Antoni Gaudí. 

From the hostel you can make excursions on foot: thirty minutes to Sta. Cecília de Riutort, forty minutes to Clot del Moro, following the GR 4, one hour to La Pobla de Lillet, two hours to Falgars Sanctuary, and almost three hours to Gavarrós. 

We should also mention a visit to the Llobregat springs, from where one of Catalonia’s most important rivers springs. There’s an easily accessible, short walk from Castellar de n’Hug, which leads us along a well signposted path to the Llobregat springs. 

The Artigas Gardens, which were designed by Antoni Gaudí at the beginning of 20th century, is a place where nature and architecture merge in perfect harmony. 

The Riutort petroleum mine, where you can learn about the process of extracting bituminous marl and obtaining petroleum by strolling through its galleries.
