Places of interest in El Puig and surroundings
As we have already said, although it is a small municipality, it is not to be missed. So, we have made a list of the places you cannot miss if you decide to visit the municipality.
- Church of Sant Andreu del Puig: it is a Romanesque church that became a parish church in 1574, under the mandate of Bishop Andreu Capella. In the church there is a 16th century image of the Virgin Mary of the Rain with Jesus.
- The hermitages of Santa Maria de Ramoneda (or La Immaculada), Sant Vicenç de les Cases de Rialb, and Sant Joan Baptista de l’Alzina: all of them are also Romanesque constructions.
- The village is surrounded by the Rialb river, the Gavarra mountains, the Torrent de Vilarrúbia and Pallerols, so we recommend that you venture out to discover the different footpaths in the surrounding area (such as the Sender de Gran Recorregut GR1), which will allow you to admire spectacular views while you enjoy nature.
- Alzinera de Cal Penjat: this is an oak tree listed as a monumental tree in Catalonia.
