Moderation, proportion and cadence define the landscape of El Moianès. Here, nature is a true spectacle, which includes Montserrat and Sant Llorenç del Munt, El Montseny, the crags of Collsacabra, El Cadí and Pedraforca, El Port del Compte and Montsec. The viewpoints built throughout the area offer spectacular views, and the Ronda del Moianès, long hike trail GR 177, is a 115.5-km trail on which to discover the region step by step. The Coves de Toll, in Moià, are a complex of caverns that were inhabited one hundred thousand years ago and are an anthropological and palaeontological legacy of prime importance. An archaeological gem as well as tourist attraction are the ice pits, built and used in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, which were important in ice manufacturing in the area.
These caves at Moià are one of Catalonia's most significant prehistoric sites. They feature a series of caverns nearly 2 kilometers long that were inhabited by people and animals at least one hundred thousand years before our era.
El Moianès Ecomuseum, housed in the Masia d'Esplugues de Castellcir, which was built onto a troglodyte grotto, demonstrates the use people have made of all the forest's resources throughout history and what life in a rural environment was like.
Santa Maria de l'Estany, El Bages, has Cultural Asset of National Interest status and is a site that comprises a twelfth-century church and a magnificent thirteenth-century cloister, which features 72 sculpted capitals and is one of the most interesting in Catalan Romanesque architecture.
The heroic defender of the city of Barcelona during the siege of 1714 was born in Moià, El Bages, in a house that is now a museum that features not only documentation on his personal life, but also the town's Archaeology and Palaeontology Museum.
