Exploring 2,000 years of history

This is the perfect opportunity to relive 2,000 years of history, from Roman times to the present day. Be inspired at the museums with the beauty of Roman mosaics, baths, pottery, gold and silverware… These amazing finds will take you back in time. And if you want to discover unknown Romanesque landmarks, you'll find them in El Berguedà. You can also learn how society has evolved through art. Our home-grown art nouveau, modernisme, is a wonderful way of discovering the way the bourgeoisie lived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They were powerful members of society who loved to display their refined taste. Many of these wealthy families owned factories in model villages. Now you can visit these villages, find out what they were like and delve into daily life on dramatised tours… And to round off your trip, you can go on a tour of the modern architecture in the Baix Llobregat. A unique insight!
