On the final day we'll go to north of Osona, bordering the region of Ripollès. The towns and villages of Montesquiu, Sant Quirze de Besora, Santa Maria de Besora, Sora and Vidrà make up the area known as El Bisaura, a beautiful landscape, with forests of pine, beech and oak trees. We recommend an unhurried visit to these towns and villages that date back over a thousand years.
However, if there is one emblematic building in this area that you must see it is undoubtedly Montesquiu Castle, built in 1285 and located at the top of the Park of the same name. As you can imagine, since the 13th century the castle has experienced many changes through times of splendour and suffering but a visit is highly recommended. On the ground floor, there is an audiovisual presentation featuring the four ghosts of the most important characters that have lived in the castle who will tell you its story. You can visit the rooms but the upper floor houses the Barcelona Provincial Council Resources Centre. After leaving the castle ‒ or before going in, if you prefer ‒ you can explore the delightful path through the shady areas around it, a signposted route of around two and a half kilometres that will bring your time in Osona to a very pleasant end.
