BAGA: A Spanish Medieval Village
Bagà is a Spanish municipality located at the head of the valley of the Llobregat river, at the foot of the high mountains of the Cadí range in Catalonia, Spain. The town itself is at 785 metres above sea level making this medieval community chilly in temperature.
My day trip to this place was a quiet, serene one. The town is really small with some of the following as the places that might interest you. Plus the small streets/ alleys are very picturesque too.
- Sant Esteve de Bagà — is the parish church of the town, built between the 14th and 15th centuries.
- Santuari de la Mare de Déu del Paller is a neoclassical sanctuary two km outside town, dedicated to the town’s patroness, the “Virgin of the Haystack”
- Plaça Porxada, the town’s central square, built in the 13th century
- Placa Galceran de Pinos, another interesting gathering area of the town.
- Parc Naturel de Cadi-Moixero, which is a lovely hiking destination in the area.
I was in Barcelona when I did this day trip trip. It is approximately 1.5 hours from Barcelona.
Don’t be a wasted soul, be ‘juan’derlust. Take it easy.
