Ripolles region in Catalonia Spain
El Ripollés is a Catalan region located in the Girona region, in the Ripoll, Ribas and Camprodón valleys. It borders with the regions of Baja Cerdaña, Berguedá, Osona and La Garrocha in Spain, and with Vallespir, Conflent and Alta Cerdaña in France.
Ripoll: The biggest tourist attraction in the capital of Ripollés
. It resides within the sphere of culture and that of fairs. We can visit the monastery of Santa María de Ripoll where we will see its impressive portico considered one of the best Romanesque works in the world, complemented by the scenes represented on the capitals of the cloister. Nearby is the ethnographic museum where, in addition to a complete collection on life in the Pyrenees from prehistoric times to the present, you can see the magnificent collection of Ripoll weapons.
. Molló, in Ripollès, has always been a land of transit, a border territory. Located 1200 meters high. The Celts and the Romans already entered and left the peninsula through this pass. Many centuries later, the Republicans did, on their way into exile from France. From the Coll d’Ares port, the view over French territory is impressive. Back in the valley, you cannot miss a visit to Molló Parc, where you can observe the native fauna of this area, such as fallow deer, mouflon, chamois or bears. Once in town, discover the beauty of the church of Santa Cecília, a good example of Catalan Romanesque, crowned by its two bell towers.
. If you like the mountains, you will like the Ripollès. In this region of the Girona Pyrenees, the terrain rises up to almost three thousand meters, on peaks such as Puigmal or Bastiments. You will find idyllic landscapes throughout the Ripollès: in its valleys – Camprodon, Ribes or Núria – nature will never cease to amaze you.
. If you want to discover the past of this territory, travel to the origins of Catalonia by visiting the Romanesque monastery of Santa Maria de Ripoll, or through other historical and cultural testimonies, such as those of Sant Joan de les Abadesses, Beget, Campdevànol or Gombrèn-Montgrony .
. If you like good food, the gastronomy of the region will leave you very fond memories. And if what you want is to move, welcome to paradise: skiing, mountain biking, hiking and lots of adventure to disconnect from everything, then your tour to Ripolles region in Catalonia Spain is your ideal choice.
