With great creativity and enthusiasm, the local people have turned nowadays these historical moments into very special attractions for the visitor .
The municipality includes two very different towns. Olvan, nestled in the mountains to the east of the Llobregat, is a traditional town dedicated to a peaceful rural way of life, while Cal Rosal, on the banks of the river, is a textile town with a glorious past and a bright future. The area around Olvan offers many routes suitable for walking, cycling or horse riding which pass by the 100 farmhouses in the municipality. To take a closer look at rural life, you can visit Fuïves, home and breeding centre of the Catalan donkey, or even stay in agro-tourism accommodation.
Cal Rosal has a rich industrial heritage which still exists today with its commercial centre and all the essential services you could need for a few days’ stay in Berguedà. The area is crossed by the Ruta de les Colònies, a path that follows the river and takes in many beautiful locations, showing the great richness that the Llobregat River brings to the region.
