In the northern part of Catalonia, just 1 kilometer from the border with France, on a high hill there is a lovely picturesque town called Puigcerda. Translated from Catalan, “Puig” means a hill – beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and valleys open up from the city. The city enjoys particular popularity during the winter holidays; lovers of alpine skiing come here to ride in the nearby resort of La Molina.
Among the attractions of the city should be called the lake of the same name, the church of Santa María de Puigcerdá next to the remnants of the bell tower of the XII century on the main square of the old town; the church Església de Sant Domènec, as well as the pretty building of the railway station.
