La Cerdanya

La Cerdanya is well known for being one of the most open, sunniest and exclusive valleys in Europe. Its location, between the Pyrenees and the Cadí and Moixaró mountain ranges, characterizes itself for its privileged climate which, in comparison with other Pyrenees regions, offers a much milder climate and a larger sun exposure.

Communications

Well connected with the important Catalan towns through the Cadí Tunnel like Barcelona, as well as with Perpignan, Toulouse and Lerida via the major roads, the Cerdanya has become a main summer holiday centre which offers a wide range of sports and leisure.

Flora and fauna

The variety of rich flora and fauna is one of the main attractions of the area and has also meant the creation of a large number of fish and game reserves as well as the Cadí-Moixaró nature reserve.

The region

The region also has a wide range of historical monuments and cultural routes, with many samples of Romanic architecture that can be found in the majority of the towns (like Age, Vilallobent or Ventajola) and some of the Gothic style monuments (like the Puigcerdá Church Tower or the Sant Martí Bridge).

The gastronomy

One of the other local attractions of the area is the wide food offer, which uses a wide variety of fresh and original products like the Cerdanya pear, the Talltendre turnip, “trumfes” (potatoes), or “cerdans” (a type of pastry) and typical well known dishes like “trinxat” (a mixture of potatoes, cabbage and a type of bacon) or “tiró amb naps” (duck with white turnips).
