Things to do
Hit the slopes at Masella, one of Spain’s oldest ski resorts. Covering 74 kilometres, it features something for all skill levels. Summer brings a whole new variety of activities, from mountain biking and quad biking to canyoning and open-air yoga.
For insight into the local history, visit Museu Espai Ceretania to browse its collection of artefacts dating back 2,500 years and access a significant archaeological site. Declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest, the Castillo de la Torre del Rio features a beautiful castle facade and neo-Romanesque chapel next door.
Head to Iglesia de Santa Maria de Tallo to see its Romanesque architecture and 17th-century bell tower. Walk through the ornate entrance with its well-preserved ironwork and soak in the beauty of an interior featuring torales arches, a central oculus and small belfry.
Drive one hour to Cadi-Moixero Natural Park for hiking trails that reveal postcard-perfect views of Catalonia, France and the Pyrenees. Adventurous travellers can explore over 40,000 hectares of mountainous terrain, climbing the Gallina Pelada, Pedraforca and Comabona peaks.
