Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park
The Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park, located in the Catalan Pyrenees, is the second largest park in Catalonia. Its main attractions are its impressive landscapes; its enormous diversity in terms of geology, flora and fauna; and the historic remains found in it, as well as the local culture and the ethnographic heritage of its inhabitants and populations. It is notable for its spectacular landscapes such as the northern side of Cadí, the rocky slopes of the south of Moixeró or the impressive silhouette of Pedraforca, as well as countless very beautiful places.
Its geology covers volcanic activity, glacial erosion, karstic phenomena, fossils and minerals, some of which are industrially exploited, such as petroleum, manganese or carbon mining.
The flora includes more than 1,500 species of trees, bushes and flowering plants. Huge pine, European silver fir, oak or beech forests, which change colour over the seasons, and subalpine meadows which are full of small flowers in summer are particularly worthy of a mention.
There is also a huge diversity of fauna, with Mediterranean, central European and Euro-Siberian species all very close to one another, and with particularly interesting forest and high mountain wildlife.
We should not forget the interest that the culture and the mountain life of the inhabitants of the 17 municipalities in the Park awaken, with many historic remains (hermitages, mediaeval bridges and towns, paths, churches, etc.), traditions, festivals and a whole host of cultural events, museums and a rich gastronomy.
To help with the visit, the natural park offers visitors an extensive network of 430 kilometres of paths for all ages and physical conditions, with facilities adaptedfor people with reduced mobility, panoramic viewpoints, picnic areas and the park information centre in Bagà, which is open all year round.
