The power of nature
Visit the source of the River Llobregat at Castellar de n’Hug
Water is synonymous with life and prosperity, especially in Castellar de n’Hug (Berguedà), where you can admire the spectacular River Llobregat, one of Catalonia’s most important waterways.
The river’s source at Fonts del Llobregat, located at an altitude of 1,295 metres above sea level, is a must-visit destination, particularly when the falls are in full flow. The water that springs from the limestone rock comes from rain and snow, which accumulates high up in the mountains during winter. The river eventually makes its way to the Mediterranean Sea, where it forms the Llobregat delta.
Vividly illustrating the sheer power of nature, the springs from which the river rises emerge directly from the slopes surrounding Castellar de n’Hug, forming a large and fast-flowing waterfall. This mighty torrent of fresh water crosses a landscape that has been carved out by the river itself on its way to the plains.
Experience the majesty of these spectacular springs at Castellar de n’Hug.
