One of the most charming villages in the province of Barcelona is undoubtedly Castellar de n'Hug. A mountain village located in the Berguedà region. A medieval village set in one of the most delightful natural environments in Catalonia, where you can visit and do a wide variety of activities.
If you are on a weekend break in Barcelona, Castellar is one of those must-see places. One of the most popular options for touring the province is to book a rental car at Terminal 1 or T2 of Barcelona airport and start your trip around Barcelona and its surroundings as soon as possible. Go at your own pace, when and where you want and with whom you choose. So, whether you arrive in Barcelona by plane or by train to Barcelona Sants station, with Record go rent a car you can have your own car hire and enjoy unmissable attractions like Castellar de Nuch.
Given Castellar’s location so close to the Catalan Pyrenees, it is easy to see the features of its landscape that make it ideal for travellers who like Pyrenean villages.
Llobregat Springs is an absolute must-see. You can't miss the springs or the place where the Llobregat River begins as it runs along a path in the village itself, and of course the town itself with its charming pathways and staircases in the midst of a beautiful natural landscape.
Castellar is a town rich in historical heritage and an example worth seeing is the parish church of Santa Maria de Castellar de n'Hug, which is located in the very centre of the town.
One of the most striking and unique things to visit in Castellar de n'Hug is the Asland cement factory. An old factory located in the Clot del Moro area whose remains are a testament to the splendour of Catalan industry.
And something the little ones and the whole family will love is the Cement Train at the foot of the Artigas gardens, designed by Gaudí, and the Empalme station in La Pobla de Lillet. This railway, built by the Asland General Asphalt and Portland Company to transport cement from the factory, runs 3.5 kilometres and is a delightful route in a unique natural environment.
