In the rugged Collsacabra area, bordering the Girona region of Garrotxa, there is a tiny village with its stone architecture that is practically untouched. There is a suspension bridge over the little "laugh" Rupit, which let you hop in cascades, leading to a medieval air core, with sturdy houses of the 16th and 17th centuries. We recommend that you spend some time to wander Fossar Street, where you can find the house of the Ferreria, reproduced in the Spanish town of Barcelona. And if you work up an appetite you can have coke or some local sweets that are sold in a bakery at the beginning of the town. Do not deprive yourself.

After hiking for about an hour, one ends up in the middle of a place where nature is reigning the landscape. Something worth seeing and which leaves you stunned is the spectacular waterfall of 150 meters with views worthy of any. I did not expect to find anything of this magnitude.
You leave Cantonigrós, go up towards the direction of Rupit Far, and after a winding road in the middle of the mountains, you can find a sanctuary in the middle of a cliff. You can go to the chapel and discover its beauty, a very old church. On leaving the church you come to the lookout and there you can get lost in the immensity of what you see: fields, houses, lakes , etc. It's worth a trip for the day and even more if you are able to catch a sunset.
Upon arrival, we left the car in a parking lot on the edge of town, as entrance for vehicles of non-residents are not allowed. We had two options, being taking the straight road to enter the village, or taking a road on the right, where we found a bridge across a river. Here it is not uncommon to see ducks and many different birds. I must add that we went to Valentine and to freezing cold. Ee crossed the bridge into almost the heart of the village. If you decide to stay over, I recommend the first hostel, which is situated just across the bridge. Do not expect a luxury room as this town is known as the oldest in Catalonia. The town is all stone and all the houses are rustic but comfortable, very quiet and with lovely breakfast on offer. You can stroll through the village, which is not very big. It is however amazing. There are multiple paths and walks and I recommend that you see the waterfall, which if I remember correctly is the highest in Catalonia. You will also encounter typical sausages, with the exorbitant size of 2 meters. Also you can eat very well at any restaurant. We ate at a restaurant close by the hostel and we were very pleased with our meal. In closing I will say that for me personally the best time of year to visit is in winter. Snow can be encountered at any time and the snow-covered houses, stone houses and fountains are worth seeing .

In this small and beautiful Natural Park you can find many Romanesque chapels and medieval villages such as Rupit latter, Tavertet Pruit and walk the cliffs that fall on the swamp. Collsacabra is watered by rivers and beautiful waterfalls. There is a vertical drop waterfall in the stream of Foradada. Les Gorgues is also well known for its varied vegetation with beech and oak that give it an almost Mediterranean feel.
