The Ripollès Romanesque Route

The area surrounding Hotel Els Caçadors de Ribes is rich in cultural heritage.  The Ripollès region is home to first-class Romanesque heritage. One of the largest concentrations in the Pyrenees and one of the most important collections of Romanesque art in Europe are found here: more than 98 monuments distributed between the 19 municipalities of the region. 

One of the most notable monuments is the Monastery of Santa Maria de Ripoll, founded at the end of the 9th century by Count Wilfred the Hairy, who also founded the Monastery of Sant Joan de les Abadesses, and the Monastery of Sant Pere de Camprodon. In the Vall de Camprodon, there are incredibly beautiful examples of Romanesque architecture: in Beget, Llanars, Molló and Villalonga. In the Vall de Ribes, you will come across small treasures in the middle of the mountains: Pardines, Planoles, Queralbs, Ribes de Freser and Toses. And following the tracks of Count Arnau, the Romanesque heritage in the Baix Ripollès region can be found in Campdevànol, Les Llosses and in Vallfogona de Ripollès, also in the Montgrony SanctuaryMataplana Castle and the Count Arnau Museum in Gombrèn.

All the information about the Romanesque route and other activities in the Ripollès region can be found at Tourist Portal of the Ripollès Region.
