Camprodon and the green valley of the Ter in Spain

Camprodon Pont Nou Bridge

Catalonia is far from the beach but made of quiet ancient villages and tourism only to local countryside and mountains. I happened to be visiting Camprodon, a town at the foot of the Pyrenees close to France and the region of Ripollès. Green is not missing here and the mountains are very close. So much so that in the nineteenth century the town became a favorite resort of the Catalan bourgeoisie for the great weather in the summer. This past class is testified by the mansions of the Passeig Maristany as well as by numerous villas and hotels.

In the middle of the town flows the river Ter which you cross to get into the city center by an ancient bridge that dates back to the 12th century. It’s very spectacular in form humpbacked for the door at one end with which you enter the city. The bridge is called Pont Nou. Inside the old houses are of stone, the streets are quiet and the size of the country remains what it once was.

Walking on the streets of central Camprodon you will be impressed by the large amount of pastry, exhibiting cakes, biscuits and chocolates of all shapes. Some of the rooms are old and have original furnishings.

A curiosity is the local Manufacture de Galletas y Bizcochos Birba dating back to the 10th century. In all grocery stores in Camprodon you will find the beautiful tins of biscuits Birba of vintage design which have delicious cookies within wrapped one by one and made ​​with natural ingredients and no preservatives.
