A land of personality

A distinctive region awaits you in the heart of Catalonia, full of stark contrasts, where you can see the imprint left by history. In Bages, prehistoric remains happily coexist with baroque monuments, while the high peaks appear to be watching over the extensive, fertile vineyards. If you don’t like half measures, you're sure to find this area fascinating!

The hundred-peak mountain

Montserrat mountain is one of the cultural, spiritual and religious symbols of Catalonia – a place where people go to see the shrine of the Black Madonna and the children of the choir singing the Virolai hymn. But Montserrat is also a natural park with its own personality: provided by the dozens of rounded needles that characterise its line of summits.

Impregnable Cardona

For over five hundred years, a walled keep protected the riches of Cardona. But nowadays, this beautiful town throws the doors to its old town wide open and unveils all the secrets of its impregnable castle.  Do you fancy a visit to the last Catalan stronghold to fall in the War of the Spanish Succession in 1714

Mysteries of Sant Benet

Are you looking for somewhere special to go for a romantic weekend? A morning of culture? A company convention? A special dinner? A creative workshop for kids? At Món Sant Benet, the heritage and leisure complex in the Bages region, you’ll find all of that and so much more! Come and visit this magical place; you’ll be amazed by its thousand years of mysteries, stories and fables.
