BARCELONA: MURA

The road from the village of Pont de Vilomara to Mura, the last ten kilometers of our journey, was narrow and winding. However, it was worth driving those kilometers because we enjoyed a lot walking around the beautiful cobbled streets of Mura, a small village of stone houses with a fantastic Romanesque church. Mura is also the entrance to the Natural Park of Sant Llorenç del Munt i l'Obac. So you can also enjoy routes in this splendid protected natural environment.

Hola, que razón tienes,Mura es precioso y es una buena salida ya que esta cerca de BCN y lo curioso es que no es muy conocido. Hace tiempo que realice una entrada en mi blog sobre este mismo pueblo.Me ha encantado la visita a tú blog, pasaré más a menudo.Un saludo desde Barcelona.
