CATALONIA PYRENEES: FONTS DEL LLOBREGAT


Near the nice village of Castellar de N'Hug in the Pyrenees, I strongly recommend visiting Les Fonts del Llobregat, the birth of one of the most important rivers in Catalonia. Les Fonts del Llobregat are even more stunning in times of abundant water.

From Castellar de N'Hug you can get there by car, although it is advisable to go walking along the path marked out of that town, where there will be found indications of vegetation and fauna. 

Near the fountains of the Llobregat you can find a snack bar with wooden tables to make a picnic and see the old flour mill of the sources, now converted into hydroelectric power.

I really enjoy the walk along this path between Les Fonts del Llobregat and Castellar de N'Hug. This path is about 1 km length
