The Vall de Boí, an outstanding example of the Lombard-inspired early Romanesque, is a jewel in the crown of Catalan art and was recognised as World Heritage by UNESCO in the year 2000. Built in the 11th and the 12th centuries, the nine churches in the various villages that make up the municipality share a rare unity of architectural style based on the simplicity and functionality of the edifices, the impressive murals within them and their slender, elegant bell towers.

Incursion from Port de la Selva into the always surprising and spectacular north slope of the Cap de Creus Nature Reserve, extraordinary for the unspoiled state of some of the coves and spots and the wild appearance of the landscape with its reliefs and vegetation shaped by the dry climate, exposure to the salt breezes and the implacable harshness of the wind, the Tramuntana. The light is also outstanding, with the deep blue of the sea in the background. The arrival at Cap de Creus, with the services around the lighthouse, after this route feels like a return to civilisation. The itinerary, which goes across country, follows GR-11 from Port de la Selva to the end at Cap de Creus. We therefore need to arrange some means of transport for the return.
El Camí Vora Ter, que discurre por la comarca de Osona, forma parte del sendero de gran recorrido GR 210. El itinerario atraviesa antiguas colonias textiles, bosques de ribera, de media montaña, poblaciones y espacios agrícolas e industriales, lugares que tienen en común el aprovechamiento ancestral del río.
This is an itinerary which allows you to discover the historic and architectural heritage of the area of Castellterçol. In the village itself, you can visit the Museum House of Prat de la Riba, a distinguished Catalan son of the village, as well as the church of Sant Fruitós and, on the outskirts, the castle and the hermitage of Sant Miquel.
