Day 1: Mas Esplugues
We will start by heading to Castellcir, where we will find what we could define as a troglodyte house under a cave: Mas Esplugues. It is a self-sufficient stately home, with its own wood, charcoal, mushrooms, medicinal plants, preserves... Indeed, the forest has for many years been the centre of the traditional economy and in this place open to visitors they will tell you about the different uses of the forests and how around sixty trades have had a direct relationship with it (and still do).
The building has a ground floor and upper floors, and the fact that the cave acts as its roof makes it a unique construction. The restored building houses the visitor's centre and there is also a multiuse room for events such as exhibitions and concerts. You can also see an 11th century Romanesque bridge.
To go to Mas Esplugues, leave your vehicle at the Quintana car park and walk for half an hour.
