Rupit (Medieval village)
Rupit is a medieval town nestled in a spectacular natural environment. The stone houses, narrow streets and the bridges of the town make Rupit a perfect place to spend a midday, walking, trying local products, etc. It's like travelling back in time four or five centuries into the past. Rupit is also the start of many hiking trails.
Sal de Sallent (Hiking)
Salt de Sallent is the longest waterfall in of Catalonia with a vertical drop of almost 100 meters if we add up all its sections. The hike starts from Rupit. It is about 6 kilometres, 3 out and 3 back for an estimated time of 1h30. A very good option to complete the day after having visited and eaten in town.
Mirador del Silenci
To go from Rupit to Tavertet, you can go through a small road: Plaça Bisbe Guillem de Tavertet. It has several very nice viewpoints, including the Silenci viewpoint. If you are lucky, you will be able to see eagles and other birds.
Tavertet is a small town of 150 inhabitants located on top of a rock. It is picturesque and with good views. It is worth stopping for an hour and feeling the tranquility and antiquity of the site.
Pantano de Sau (Lake)
The Sau Reservoir is the famous lake where the town of San Román de Sau lies buried under water. You will only see the highest part of the village church. You can kayak on the lake. Around it, a spectacular landscape and perfect places to spend the night using the Park4night app
