Weekend break in La Cerdanya
Spending a weekend in Spain during the winter can be such a great idea if you like winter sports, but also if you want to take a break in a unique setting. For this reason, we propose you a weekend in La Cerdanya where you can easily reach from Barcelona.
It is one of the widest valleys in Europe, located in the upper Segre valley, in the Catalan Pyrenees. It is famous for having more than three thousand hours of sunshine a year. Through this valley there are routes such as the Camino de Santiago in Ceretano, the Camino de los Buenos Hombres or the Dender of Pyrenees GR-11.
In addition to nature and dreamlike landscapes, a weekend in Spain discovering La Cerdanya also includes culture, gastronomy and exciting sports such as skiing. To give you an idea of what you can find, we explain the different plans you can choose for a magical weekend.
Five plans for a Spanish weekend break in La Cerdanya
These are some of the weekend proposals in Spain to enjoy with family, partner or friends. Discover here everything you can visit!
- Skiing in La Molina and Masella
If you are one of those who enjoy the ultimate winter sport, you will surely love La Cerdanya. In this valley we find several ski resorts to practice all the disciplines of its winter sport. For example, in Aransa you can practice Nordic skiing, as well as in Lles de Cerdanya and Guils Tontanera. If you prefer to practice with the whole family, we recommend La Molina; And if heights are your thing, the Masella ski resort has its highest point at 2,535 meters above sea level.
- Taking a walk through Puigcerdà
Puigcerdà is very close to the French border and is one of the largest towns in the area. Taking a walk to Puigcerda is more than recommended. Its historic center, with its ecclesiastical buildings, such as the bell tower of the church of Santa María —the only vestige of Gothic from the 12th century—, the park with a pond included, and the Plaza Mayor, offers endless opportunities to taste the local gastronomy and buy souvenirs.
- Amazing Tour visiting some jewels of Romanesque Architecture
In addition to the religious architecture of Puigcerdà, La Cerdanya is full of towns with authentic Romanesque jewels. For example, the temples of Santa María de Talló, Sant Andreu de Baltagra and Sant Julià de Pedra, in Bellver de Cerdanya. In addition to the churches and hermitages, it is very interesting to take a walk through the Martinet i Montellà bunker park. The museum assembly is very innovative. It consists of several audiovisuals and a small mountain route that, together with a guide, covers up to eight fortifications, including combat and artillery points.
- Walking Routes such as the ascent to Puigpedrós (2.915 msnm)
It is the highest mountain in the province of Girona —2,914 m—, and it gets its name from the large number of stones that we find right on its top. This route begins at the Malniu refuge and, as soon as it begins, you come to a lake, Estany Sec. Although it is a route for people in good physical shape, it is not particularly difficult to reach the top, so it can be a good plan for one of the days of the weekend in Spain. You can also explore more routes with your family.
- Gastronomy and wellness in Cerdanya Ecoresrort
You shouldn’t miss a more relaxed plan focused on well-being. That is why, we propose you a pleasant stay in la Cerdanya Ecoresort. Regardless of the time of year you visit us, you can choose between different types of accommodation, wellness programs and different activities, as well as gastronomy of the area made with local products.
