This small village with a typical mountain style has cobbled streets and alleys and stone houses, which have been maintained over time. The Romanesque churches of Santa Maria de n’Hug and Sant Vicenç de Rus are part of the heritage of Castellar de n’Hug.
The town center of this town gathers around Sta. Maria de n’Hug, from the 11th century, which retains its characteristic bell tower: a four-storey tower. Inside the parish of St. Vicenç de Rus, from the 11th century, you can see reproductions of Romanesque paintings. You can find more information here.
But you can’t leave this town without tasting two of its most typical gastronomic products: the giant croissant and the fuet!
