Let’s go to the Serra de Bufadors on the border of the Osona and the Ripollés regions. There, we’ll discover a very special and hidden geomorphological heritage: the Bufadors de Beví!.
From the holes and cracks that we'll find between the large blocks of rocks, we can hear the whisper of the mountain's winds. In this environment of magical appearance the massive stones and walls are covered by beautiful flowers, moss and rich vegetation. We'll enter its spectacular beech forests and hike up through a path of great beauty to reach the castle of Santa Maria de Besora where we’ll enjoy stunning panoramic views of the area and the entire Eastern Pyrenees.
We’ll discover many more hidden secrets along the way!
