Our Neighbourhood

Puigcerdà is the most important place in La Cerdanya.

Cerdanya, a natural Catalan county of excellence, forms a physiographic unity defined by some orographical, climatic and historical features which grant the region a very particular character.

Mainly integrated by the higher Valley of the Segre river, Cerdanya is one Europe’s most extended valleys, with a minimum altitude (about 1000 metres), with its east to west orientation, and a high dose of insolation of about 3000 hours of sun exposure a year.
The mountainous shapes the Cadí Mountain Range (occidental half), the Moixeró Mountain Range and other more oriental massifs like the Tossa d’Alp and the Puigllançada, and the Pedraforca massif in the Berguedà region.
Its diversity and beautiful landscape is clearly evident: from pure Mediterranean traits to alpine meadows of high altitude, you can even find sub-Mediterranean woods, beech forests, boreal woodlands of red pine trees and sub-alpine conifer woods with black pine trees and fir trees. The Park’s vegetation is considered of special interest, since its low temperatures, the high degree of humidity in the area, and its altitude have all contributed to the existence of species which are not characteristic of the Mediterranean region but of northern Europe and the high alpine or European mountains instead.
Cerdanya is the ideal place to enjoy sports in a unique setting, a privileged environment offering a wide range of possibilities of practicing many kinds of sports: Mountain bike trails, long and short paths, cross-country skiing, alpine skiing, golf courses, horseback riding, fishing, hiking and mountain climbing, snowshoes, … here you can find businesses and organised outdoor adventure events specialized in all those sports with professionals who will turn these activities into a safe adventure.
