<p>Manresa, capital of Bages</p>

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!

<p>aper Mill and Museum in Capellades</p>

To the west of Montserrat we find Anoia, a region where it's still possible to get away from it all and regain some peace and calm. It's a land for stargazing, strolling around towns and cities brimming with history, visiting old factories converted into museums or tasting delicious artisanal food in fairs and markets. Are you ready to discover its treasures?

<p>Boixadors Castle, in Sant Pere Sallavinera</p>

Over 45 castles, 25 of which are open to the general public, are the jewels of mediaeval heritage in the region of Anoia. Some are easy to get to, while others are more isolated, but they all hold plenty of historical and cultural interest. Do you already know the most famous ones?
