Capital of the Osona County. In it there is an episcopal centre, the Sucre cinema, Vic’s University, the Atlántida Theatre...the many resources this city has and its dynamism are worth a visit. Nobody should miss interesting locations such as the Art Museum, the Skinning Art Museum, the Balmes Museum, the Pere III wall, the Cathedral, the Roman Temple, and the main square’s Market on Saturday amongst others.
There are also two activities that should be marked in the agenda: the Ram’s Show and the Música Viva’s Market. It is a town worth visiting because it has one of the most appealing medieval complexes, which was chosen as one of the seven marvels of Catalonia in 2007. The old town’s centre is the Main Square, in which many modernist buildings, towers and other architectonic important pieces stand out among the city’s newest buildings.
Vic also owns an Archaeological Museum in which important people like Jaume Balmes (philosopher) and Jacint Verdaguer (poet) studied in. The town is famous for its “butifarres” and other pork derived cold meat products, especially “fuet” which is very popular in Catalonia. The manufacture of these kind of cold meat products in Vic’s plane comes from decades and decades ago and it’s well known around Spain.
Vic’s traditional “popular giants career” is also rising and the town has welcomed two more giants to the crew they already had (Llucia and Mercè) and twho more little giants (Muley-Abbas i Ermessenda). These two little giants are meant for children to start getting familiar with Catalonia’s traditions and symbolic figures.
July 5th is a special day for the city since we have a special celebration for a Saint (Sant Miquel dels Sants) and which has been called a national interesting stop if you’re around those days of the year.
This 2016 Vic will officially become the Capital of the Catalan Culture. The many celebrations Vic holds show Catalonia how its traditional culture is not coming to an end but coming to a strong revival and hundreds of people visit Vic every year to prove it. During those celebration days we party all day long and a lot of activities take action along the streets of Vic. Those activities are meant for the youngest and also for the oldest to have fun together.
The celebrations last a week or so but July 5th is when the biggest activities take action and all the streets are filled with joy and fun. To get a deeper understanding of what the celebration means to us you’ll have to come, see it with your own eyes and feel it in your own skin! Pavelló de l’Ausoneta

Its right in the middle of Vic’s plane and two catholic small churches stand out along with the town’s castle. Just as Vic, Gurb holds a lot of festive days and you’re bound to find there’s a celebration going on whenever you visit the place either it’s summer or winter time!
The castle is located right in the middle of the little town on top of a hill bearing the town’s same name. It was build next to Saint Andrew’s little church and it’s crowned by its well-known iron’s Gurb cross.
Indeed, this small town’s history comes with the castle’s one and nowadays there’s no such thing as a specific place to call “Gurb’s downtown” since its residents simply live in “Masias” (typical Catalan huge stone build houses) well spread around the castle’s territory. However, there are four little churches in that area which people like to visit: St. Andrew’s, St. Cristòfol de Vespella, St. Julià Sassorba and St. Exteve de Granollers de la Plana.
Esperança’s region is one of the areas near Vic that supply Gurb’s residents a place to shop and buy the things they need and they use it as the city centre themselves. In the recent years this area has started to hold several industrial units which have meant a special income for the people who live around.

This is the most important town in the county after Vic and it’s usually called the water’s town since it owns more than 40 different fountains around the town and along Ter’s walk and Manlleu’s water Museum.
Manlleu is located in the centre of Osona’s county only 85 km away from Barcelona and 90km away from Girona. It’s also well connected with l’Eix Transversal.
Ter’s river has shaped the town’s growth and urban development. This river has always had an important role on the town’s history and has also experienced our society’s technological and social changes through the last decades.
The water and the river’s strength has been a source of energy and have impulse life in the zone for centuries. The industrialization brought many industries to gather around the river and nowadays we still have some remaining symbols of that like Colònia Rusiñol, the old residence of modernist tendencies of the family Rusiñol, or the old home residence of Can Sanglas, where we can find an actual Museum now.
This industrial past is iconic for the town itself and its inhabitants. This fact can be seen and felt while you’re walking through the town’s streets. It’s a very dynamic place and you can’t miss the Pork’s and Beer’s fair. The local Museum also holds different expositions throughout the year and Saint James Sanctuary, St. Mary’s church and many other Romanic remains make Manlleu a town worth visiting.
Other events like the Jazz Festival, the Fans Clàssic or the Toni’s party along with several sport events and celebrations make the place very attractive the whole year around.

This town is located on the river Ter’s shore and north up from St. Quirze. Its Montesquiu Castle and Nando’s spare zone play an important role for the population of that area and the landscape and vegetation are also very nice.
The village is well communicated with C-17 and the train station that connects Barcelona with Puigcerdà is also nearby. If you rather travel by car you may get to Barcelona in an hour and you can be in Vic in 20 minutes.
The Castle’s the highlight of this little town and its origins get to 1285. It actually was the first building ever in the area that we have material constant of. The “Casa Forta” has been a private residence for a wealthy family in Besora and it has gone through many modifications since it was build.
There are several bridges that you must visit if you come around. We recommend you the Codines Bridge inside the Castle of Montesquiu’s Park area. There are also some well-known fountains like “La font d’en Nando” and “La font del Roure” and many paths mountaineers will enjoy as well.
