The Claramunt Castle
Claramunt Castle is the main architectural, historical and tourist attraction of La Pobla. Dating from the 10th century, it is located on top of a 461-meter hill from which there is a magnificent view of the natural surroundings. Belonging to the heritage of the Generalitat (the Catalan government), it is one of the ten best castles in Catalonia and the jewel of the Anoia region. The climb takes about half an hour on foot, with an easy, pleasant and entertaining route, and presents no problem to enjoy with children.
TRACKS, TRAILS AND THE GORGES
The Tous Fou
The Fou is a waterfall in the Tous stream that is located on the property of Aubareda, the oldest farmhouse in the region. In its course, this waterfall creates a series of pools and streams that together form a wet spot in the middle of a dry-land like Tous. A series of legends run around the Fou, based mainly on the large number of caves that the water has formed over time in the rocks.
The Cabrera Waterfalls
In the village of Cabrera, next to the Alt Penedès region, we find a group of waterfalls that are not so well known and are truly a little wonder. They are located in the torrent of the Bleda, a stream that goes from Canaletes to Bedorc. The waters have worked uninterruptedly sculpting a set of waterfalls of great beauty. The “Salt del Cargol” (snail waterfall) is, without a doubt, one of the most magical elements of this stream.
The Nafre Gorge
The outing to the “Gorg de Nafre” in Copons is a pleasant and easy walk suitable for everyone. A short walk along a pretty flat path that ends at a waterfall about 4 meters high with a pool below, where you can cool off.
In the municipality of Orpi, we find the gorges of Saint Càndia. In this spot, the Carme stream traces a very special route immersed in the middle of the rock, cut by the same force of the water and its sediments that form a series of pools of water that are ideal for bathing and as an initiation to canyoning.
Capellades Paper-mill Museum
Located in an old paper mill of the 18th century, called Molí de la Vila, next to the “Bassa”, a natural source from which sprung a flow of 12 million liters per day. Its energy was used for the operation of the 16 paper mills that existed back in those times. Here you can learn about the artisanal process of making paper since its origins.
