Start by exploring Copons, 15 minutes by car from the region´s capital, Igualada. The Anoia Turisme map indicates up to 17 points of interest, and there’s a little of everything: religious and public buildings, squares, alleys, factories, springs and even natural pools. Also vegetable gardens, reservoirs and mills on the outskirts of the town but very close to the first houses. As in the other towns you’ll visit, we recommend that you follow a route on the map or, perhaps even better, go where the spirit takes you and see what you find, because there are interesting spots everywhere. There is also a tourist information point in La Culletera restaurant-cafeteria. It’s a very good place to start, as there are things to see right there, such as the monument to the traders and muleteers of Copons designed by Ernest Altés and unveiled 15 years ago, the rectory, which dates back to 1760, and the Church of Santa Maria de Copons, with neoclassical and baroque elements. We especially like Plaça Ramon Godó, with different kinds of arches, and it was a Godó, Hermenegild, who founded the big textile factory that is still standing and connects with Cal Mero by means of an overpass. If you have time, go to the natural pools of El Nafre and Salat, and the Romanesque Church of Sant Pere.
