The Count Arnau Museum in Gombrèn and Mataplana Castle

The Ripollès region is a land of monasteries, with an impressive Romanesque legacy. The "Terra de Comtes i Abats" (Land of Counts and Abbots) project offers visitors a fascinating trip to places where history, culture, religion and art have left a wealth of heritage. A trip to rediscover the testimony of characters and extraordinary events. 

These testimonies include the settings in which the life of Count Arnau took place, such as the Count Arnau Museum in Gombrèn, Mataplana Castle and the Sant Joan de les Abadesses Interpretation Centre, which make up a top level historic route, with areas that have been converted into museums and with specific signs that explain the history and the legends of this historic person who became a myth.
