This itinerary allows you to discover an area of great beauty and lushness in Montseny Nature Park, declared a World Biosphere Reserve. The whole route is signposted. At the end of the excursion we recommend a visit to the Information Centre of Can Casades Nature Park, where the route begins.
An itinerary round the Aitona district, which winds along by the River Segre and the canal network (dating back to the early 20th century), which was established for irrigation and electricity supply purposes. You climb to the historical location of Sant Joan de Carratalà, from where the view stretches many kilometres into the distance; you descend to the crop and fruit fields, visit the old factory village of La Canadenca, or Canadiense, the company that built the canals and the hydroelectric power station of Seròs, and you encounter the magnificent landscape surrounding the Utxesa reservoir.
Taradell is a town in Osona, with a long working and industrial tradition, open and attractive. In the south of the Vic plain at the foot of the Montseny massif, it is a typical summer resort. It has fine stone buildings from the 16th to 18th centuries; chapel of Santa Llúcia (16th century), Romanesque bell tower (1076) and large neoclassical church (1755-1763).
It is a very straightforward route that offers longer and more difficult options, among which is a well-recommended visit to the old town of Aramunt. In summer, it can get very hot, which may be a drawback since most of the route is exposed to the sun. However, the fact that you can take a dip in Sant Antoni reservoir might partially make up for this limitation. Besides the context particular to the route, Pallars Jussà offers a variety of very interesting discoveries related to the landscape, geology (conglomerate escarpments) and culture (old high-up villages).
Comediants brings all the magic of the theatre, the performing arts and their creative journey to an exhibition in the Palau Robert, which looks back at the pioneering career of this Catalan theatre company, which made its home in Canet de Mar and has performed its works across five continents.
