Sobre Dinosaures, Miners, Rucs i Santuaris, al Berguedà



Fa molts i molts anys, uns dinosaures es van instal·lar prop d’una mina per la qual passava un tren que portava ciment per una vall preciona ple d’or negre. Al costat d’una cova natural, va sorgir un jardí mpagin ple de formes curioses que van fer que la verge baixés del Santuari amb el seu ruc català. Benvinguts al Berguedà 😉

 

Okay, was I caught, is a fabricated story but what I do not invent are all xulíssimes curiosísimas and things that are close to Berga. Warning! Dinosaurs, coal mines, railway cement, natural caves full of black gold, sanctuaries overlooking amazing and yes, also the world center of donkey native Catalan.


Recently we were in Glamping in Berga.Glamping? Yes, this fantastic concept that means "going camping with glamor" that is, with all the comforts of a hotel but in the middle of nature. And if I'm honest, I must admit that prior to our experience, believed that there was not much to do in Berga, apart from La Patum. And I was wrong completely. I am not exaggerating if I say that Berga (Berguedà and) is a great destination for a weekend with the family!


We chose especially for Berga accommodation. We wanted a familiar place where we could do things with our daughter in case of cold or rain. And that was near Cerdanya chained to the bridge two days with the family.


It was just there, almost by surprise, that we discovered a lot of things to do with kids around Berga. Therefore, Berguedà already figure in our list Child's favorite destinations.

The river Llobregat is one of the most important of Catalonia and was born in the mountains of Berguedà. More specifically the village of Castellar de n'Hug. An easy and beautiful trip and highly recommended if you go with children. For me, this is one of the excursions mythical and essential Catalonia. Leave your car at the Hostal Las Fuentes and walk 800 meters to climb the fountains or drive to the parking Sources (600m into the woods, once past the hostel).

The tour of the Llobregat sources is well signposted and prepared, with wooden fences. There are several steps but not complicated. In rainy or melting, waterfalls are quite impressive! Admission is free.

Where to sleep in Berga


We stayed at it's ideal for and I'd be done with eyes closed. No wonder we were the only chalet No. 7 but also we found a very nice and attentive treatment by the people.


Una menció especial per a l’empleat de recepció que ens va convèncer de pujar al Santuari de Queralt a les 17h, simplement explicant-nos la seva pròpia experiència d’aquell matí i mostrant-nos fotos amb el seu iPhone. Amb gent local tan apassionada per la seva terra és fàcil convèncer els forans 🙂


 

 

 

 

 

 

 


El Berga Resort és un càmping amb totes les comoditats d’un resort. Una petita “ciutat” dedicada a l’oci i al descans familiar. Nosaltres ens vam decidir per aquest allotjament en veure la quantitat de coses que oferia – era un pla perfecte en cas de pluja o fred:

  • two indoor heated pools (one for swimming, one for play)
  • Chiquipark a huge covered ( "saltypark" they call it) for children from 1 year
  • a playground with slides and zip and several castles of different levels,
  • workshops and activities for children with animators,
  • spa water circuit,
  • tennis and paddle
  • and in the summer: outdoor swimming pools including a small area and waterslide (!!!)

But if you were to ask our daughter what she liked most, I am convinced that I would say: the attic of the villa where we were! The villas are like bungalows but larger. They have two rooms down and a third in a loft that we we were using it as a "game room" and "magical." Our daughter spent two days rehearsing and going up and down the stairs and playing long periods each night in their "attic."


The Berga Resort has bungalows, chalets and mobile homesIn addition to space for tents and caravans. Highly recommended if you book a chalet a family with children, because it has a lot of space and you are very comfortable. Everything is wood, cozy and warm. The temperature perfect, and comfy beds. And I repeat: so yes you can go camping!
