The gentlest face with scattered woods, valleys and villages.
On its northern slopes, the Moixeró shows you its gentler face, full of almost magical woods that you can visit thanks to the area’s footpaths. Walking through these woods you come to Penyes Altes, a triangulation station and the highest point in the mountain range at 2,276 m. From there you can see a large part of the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park.
The villages that live in the shadow of the Moixeró, such as the mediaeval village of Bellver de Cerdanya, have preserved their most historical parts and have bequeathed us a fine collection of Romanesque chapels. These include Sant Julià de Pedra, Sant Marcel de Bor, Santa Eugènia de Nerellà and Sant Serni de Coborriu, as well as the “Cathedral of La Cerdanya”, Santa Maria de Talló.
You will also find the Fou de Bor, an excellent attraction for speleologists.
In Talló you have the Information, Interpretation and Research Centre of the Natural Park and its area. There you can find out everything you need to know about the Park and its surroundings (Artesans, Les Basses de Gallissà, etc.).
BEAR IN MIND
· The ascent to Penyes Altes de Moixeró is not recommended in winter, as there is normally snow on the highest parts that could cause you difficulties, especially on the crest line and the last stretch up to the summit, where the snow freezes.
• Mature woods: L’Avetosa de Riu de Cerdanya with fir trees over four metres in diameter.
• Villages: not to be missed are the mediaeval village of Bellver de Cerdanya, Pi, Bor and Riu de Cerdanya. • Penyes Altes and Prats de Moixeró, beautiful scenery and spectacular views.
• Camí ral de Coll de Pendís, a highway once used by the people of Cerdanya and Berguedà and travellers from elsewhere to cross the mountains through the Coll de Pendís pass.
• Santa Maria de Talló, the Romanesque “Cathedral of La Cerdanya”.
• Romanesque chapels scattered all around.
• Singular valleys, such as those of Pi, L’Ingla and Ridolaina.
