I have two days off … Let’s travel to the heart of Catalonia

GOOD DAY OF CATALONIA TO ALL!

Barcelona lives in September 11 full of cultural and protest events, in a Day marked by the countdown of the referendum on October 1. The most massive act of the day is undoubtedly the mobilization that the National Assembly of Catalonia (ANC), which at the moment fills the Passeig de Gràcia and Carrer Aragó form a gigantic sum symbol (“+”) .

We’re here again! How fast the time goes by, we are going through the third publication (and it’s not the last!)

We wish very heartily that those who have been able to enjoy the Solsona Festival as much as we do!

Now, like every Monday, we are looking forward to the next delivery of these informative blogs. (Many, many thanks for following each Monday!)

This week we will travel, literally to the heart of Catalonia. We will visit the geographic center of our lands, one of the oldest altarpieces in the country and we will discover some gastronomic corners of the area.

And for lovers of hiking and bicycles, we will show you the routes that can be done in the same area. So get your shoes tight, let’s start!

History and culture of the South of the Solsonès

Good morning!

Let’s touch a little history and culture of the Solsonès. We take the car and we will head to the Miracle, towards Lleida about 15 minutes from Solsona.

  • Miracle Sanctuary: The Miracle Sanctuary is a religious center dedicated to the Virgen del Miracle, located in the western part of the Riner municipality, in Solsonès. The complex consists of a church, a chapel, a monastery dedicated to Benedictine Montserrat, several places of reception: cells, Spirituality House and tourist services. It is worth mentioning the two altarpieces it contains: one of the 16th century Renaissance style attributed to Pere Nunyes; and the magnificent baroque altarpiece of the Miracle, from the 18th century and the work of the sculptor Carles Morató and the painter Antoni Bordons.
    • Schedule for guided tours: Every Saturday, Sunday and public holidays you can discover the best kept secrets of the Miracle Sanctuary, such as its baroque altar and sacristy, the cloister of the monastery and the Baath.
    • Price: € 2 per person

Apart from visiting the Sanctuary, we can stroll through the gardens and surroundings, with beautiful landscapes! Do not forget to take a lot of pictures!

After visiting the Sanctuary, take a guided tour, take as much photographs as the camera’s memory allow and rest for a little while in the bar at the sanctuary, we will head to Su, just 7 minutes from the Miracle.

  • Su: it is a town located at the headwaters of the Matamargó stream. It has a nucleus of clustered settlement. Formerly it formed an independent commune until in the middle of the nineteenth century it was integrated into the Riner term. In Su, we can visit the church of Santa Maria, the recotra of Su, the chapel of Miralles and the Collet del Moro.

Since we are sure to have a bit of hunger, we will take this opportunity to eat here in Su, which, like many villages in the region, focuses on homemade cooking, the one from the granny. We recommend the “Forn de Su” in a unique environment, where you will be treated as if you were at your home!

Having eaten and paused the food (if they are dishes like the ones that made by the granny, maybe will will peal until tomorrow …) and with the coolness of the early afternoon, we will take the car again and we will go to Ardèvol, about 10 Minutes of Su, enjoying the landscape as we arrive.

  • Ardèvol: Ardèvol is a village in the municipality of Pinós, in Solsonès, at the foot of the Sierra de Pinós and very close to the geographical center of Catalonia. Formerly it had a castle whose only rectangular watchtower is left. The population, of about 111 inhabitants, lives divided between the nucleus and the dispersed country houses. Only 5 minutes away from Ardebolo, we can visit Dolmen de la Pera, a funerary monument built at the end of the final Neolithic period and used up to the middle bronze that you can not miss!

Do not fall asleep, because now, we will go to one of the most wonderful and essential parts of the route if you come to Solsonès (apart from trying the trumfos, if you do not try the Solsonès trumfos, you will not have been here!), We will travel to Pinós, 10 minutes from where we were now and where we can say that we are at the Geographic Center of Catalonia !.

  • Pinós: Pinós is a municipality in the Solsonès region that is named after one of the five villages that make it up. It is located in the geographical center of Catalonia. It is also part of Alta Segarra.
  • Geographic center of Catalonia: About 200 meters to the west of the sanctuary, at 930.60 meters above sea level, there is a rose of winds on a large block of stone. In addition to indicating the main winds, he drew in the empty spaces between the tips some of the main symbols of Catalan culture.

We will start to get tired, so we will be finalizing our itinerary.

To finish, we will return north to Matamargó about 20 minutes from Pinós.

  • Matamargó: Matamargó is one of the five entities of the town of Pinós in the Solsonès region. There is no urban nucleus. The settlement is dispersed in the farms that make up the entity. In Matamargó, we will be able to visit “Les Casas de Matamatgó”, a farmhouse from the XVI century converted this year into a cultural space, where you can see, through a tour, how the family life of a self-sufficient house in the nineteenth century . The farm was a reference to the region for its ability to manage and produce in itself all the necessary products to survive in a farmhouse away from the main centers, which were those that had the services. To be able to see represented each one of the peculiarities of self-sufficiency, the original spaces have been adapted and restored as exhibition halls, delimiting the tasks that were carried out in each one.

And with that, we will finish our route, which at this time must have been dark …

You can return to Solsona along the road, direction Cardona, taking the C-55, which will take you to Solsona in an open and close eye!

It has been a tiring day, full of visits, culture, history and wonderful landscapes, we deserve a good dinner and a good bed in which to rest, because tomorrow we will rent a bicycle (or just on foot) and enjoy the landscapes that today We could not do with the car.

Good night!!

I have two days off … Let’s know Solsona

As we said in the previous post, we started with the series of informative blogs where you will find: routes, activities, what to do, guided tours, opinions and everything you need to know to spend two days in Solsona and do not miss anything!

Solsona, is a city located very close to the geographical center of Catalonia (Pinós), it has approximately 9000 inhabitants and is more known as “the city halfway to everything”, since, from Solsona, there It has more or less the same distance to the most popular capitals: Barcelona – 115km, Lleida – 79km, Andorra – 88km, Tarragona – 127km.

 

Solsona is a city that preserves the old medieval city in very good conditions that, over the years, the families of former owners have been returning their lives by reforming it.

At the moment, it is a historical city woven with tradition jealously guarded; It is a city where the olive grows and the flourish blooms, full of life and restlessness that, located in the center of Catalonia, struggles to be present and active in the history of today’s Catalonia.

corpus2008_DSC1169

Today, we will focus on bringing the history of the city to life by visiting its streets inside and outside the walls. Some interesting routes in the surroundings with scent landscapes and we will soak in the Sant Ponç reservoir.

Keep reading and find ideas for these two days:

Discovering Solsona

We get up early with the cool breeze that accompanies this small mountain town, take lunching forces and head towards the entrance of the old town, at the Portal del Pont.

On the right, we will find the Ice Well, where we can take a guided tour, which is very worthwhile (visit www.solsonaexperience.com for hours and rates!). We continue up the street until arriving at the square of the Cathedral where we can admire the current Gothic building superimposed on the Romanesque church and the image chapel of Our Lady of the Cloister, from the 12th century.

We continue climbing and we will run into the Plaza Mayor, where we usually celebrate the events of the city and where we will find the “Can Massana” pastry shop founded in 1964, At present, it is preserved, if it does or does not do the same, the origin of the recipe of the famous croissant cake (you can not leave Solsona without trying!).

Take a little breath, because the rise has just begun!

If we continue on, we will find the “Tower of Hours” where we hang the Solsonins donkey for Carnival (a fake one!), And then the town hall.

The slope is over, and as you can see, it has been worthwhile, from the front of the Town Hall we can admire the final section of Carrer Castell, with the Castle portal at the end, which creates a very unique and peculiar depth effect . We have reached the end of the main street of the old town, but there are many more little ones, perhaps not so well-known, but with the same charm as the latter for which we have walked.

It is about enjoying each of the streets that have their own charm and get lost in the walls of the old town.

After enjoying the wonderful paths and streets of the old town, having visited historic sites and having done some tourism, it is time to fill your stomach with a good home-made lunch (you will find some options here www.solsonaturisme.com/ca/on-menjar ) And have a good nap. We are waiting for a busy afternoon!

As soon as digestion is done, we will head to Castellvell, a very old castle dating from the year 1217 that is currently a viewpoint from where we will obtain spectacular views of all the Vinyet de Solsona and much of Of the region.

Before that, we will pass through the Mare de la Font Park, a beautiful place surrounded by forest and small waterfalls.

If we follow the following route on foot, we will arrive to Castellvell:

If after completing the route and having the best views of Solsona, you are not tired, you can stop taking the fresh air at any of the bars or restaurants with terrace. There are many to choose from!

Get a swim at the Sant Ponç swamp

We had a pretty busy first day, it is likely that we will even have pittances!

So this second day we will take relaxation and enjoy the Solsonès landscapes.

Taking advantage of the good weather, we carry our backpacks with towels, swimsuits, sun cream and everything we need to spend the day in the swamp!

The Sant Ponç reservoir is located between Solsona and Cardona, we can access both by car or by bicycle.

  • To go by car: (from the Hotel la Freixera)
    • Northwest direction from Sant Llorenç Street to Travessia Sant Roc
    • Continue on Carretera de Manresa and C-55. After passing a few roundabouts … Take the exit towards Sta. Susanna from C-55.
    • At the roundabout (yes, another), take the third exit and head towards the Pantano de Sant Ponç. It’s a narrow road but it’s okay.
  • To go by bicycle:

Once we reach the reservoir we have two paths, cross the dam and look for a good place to extend our towels or stay near the Campsite, where there is a bar, just next to the dam.

It’s time to relax, soak up the sun or enjoy a dip in the swamp until noon. We take the picnic baskets, and good profit!

After dinner (food is much better in the middle of nature!), It seems that we have nothing left to do with the same routine in the morning, but calm, that we do not get bored!

Just in the other corner of the dam, we have the booth of the marsh, a small shop, where we can enjoy aquatic activities such as canoeing, paddle stand …

At Hotel la Freixera we have discounts for some of the activities mentioned in the Blog, for our clients.

They are one kilometer from the village of La Coma, in the Solsonès region. Depending on the time of year we can find splendid waterfalls and an impressive water jet. They are located at the beginning of the Cardener river, an idyllic place that allows us to hear the murmur of the water and to contemplate the mountains that border this place.

Sant Pere De Graudescales – Leisure and Culture

Enjoy leisure and culture while visiting the monastery of Sant Pere de Graudescales and do not forget your swimsuit, Agua de Ora is right next door.

Small monastery created to be a Benedictine house and transformed into a canonical, of which only a vestige is preserved. It is located in the Vall d’Ora, next to the Agua d’Ora (a tributary of the Cardener), in the skirt of the cliffs of the Sierra de Busa, in the middle of a place of great natural beauty. The present church dates from the 12th century and is considered a Lombard Romanesque style. It consists of a single ship with a Latin cross plant. The ship and the transept are covered with half-point barrel vaults, of equal height and perpendicular to each other, with three semicircular apses. The floor of the building is of Greek cross. The opening of a cross-shaped window in one of the walls of the church stands out. The apses have a decoration with array bands without lasenes. The church was declared a cultural asset of national interest.

Next to the monastery, you will find a picnic area and the river Aigua D’ora.

Popular devotion took a great deal of importance as of the year 1507, when Bernat Cases, de Matamargó, declared that, when arriving at the chapel of way towards Biosca, the Virgin had appeared to him.
