The spectacular origin of the Llobregat river
With all the strength of nature, the sources where the Llobregat river is born, flow directly from the cliffs that border Castellar de n'Hug and the nearby peaks such as Puigllançada and Tossa d'Alp. Underground water that emerges from limestone is the result of the rain and snowy waters that have been accumulating on the mountain during the winter. The Llobregat river crosses Catalonia from north to south through the regions of Berguedà, Bages and Baix Llobregat and finally ends at the Mediterranean forming the Llobregat delta.
We recommend a route to visit the sources, a short and easy walk from Castellar de n'Hug leads us along a well signed path until the source of one of the most important rivers in Catalonia, the Llobregat. In about 20min and 1km (one way), we go down the paved and stairway path that leads to the place where the water flows from within the mountain to form a beautiful waterfall. This is a visit for all ages and a classic in Alt Berguedà.
