Lluçanès is a natural region located between Osona, Berguedà and Bages. The region’s unique location, away from any major road links, has allowed it to preserve the spirit of inland Catalonia practically intact. From the beautiful centre of Lluçanès, you can see the mountains of Montserrat, Pedraforca, Montseny, Cadí and the Pyrinees. The influence of industrialization on Lluçanès has been minimal compared to other nearby regions. Contact with nature, traditional know-how, respect for the environment and serenity have become the trademarks of the this region where the La Cugulada country house is located. We suggest you visit the following places to make the most of your stay in the Lluçanès region:


El Roc Foradat (Prats de Lluçanès):
Legend has it that this where a witch called Napa would hide the hens she bred or stole to lay eggs for her. It is also, supposedly, where she would cook her brews. Witch Napa is a 17th century character that really existed and was known for spreading fear among her neighbours, who accused her of killing a young girl.

La Ruta del Románico al Lluçanès:
Lluçanès is home to several samples of Romanesque architecture. Closest to La Cugalada is Santa Maria de Lluçà, a group of 12th century buildings including a cloister, gothic paintings and a main gate which preserves its old Romanesque ironwork. This monument is open to the public on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 11am to 1.30pm, as well as on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 2pm and from 4pm to 6pm. Visits can be arranged by phone at +34 93 853 01 30.


Another place of interest next to La Cugalada is the Romanesque crypt of Sant Andreu d'Oristà, which dates from the year 923 AC and was renovated in the late 18th century, when some Baroque and Neoclassical features were added to the crypt. If you would like to arrange a visit, we recommend you call +34 93 812 80 30.

The route of the castle of Lluçà is another family outing you can do from La Cugulada as it’s only a short 3km walk. The route we propose runs through the village of Lluçà and covers the church of Santa Maria de Lluçà, an old medieval castle and the Romanesque hermit of Sant Vicenç, built in the late 10th century.
