What to see in Bellver de Cerdanya
It is interesting to stop to contemplate the architecture offered by the old town of Bellver de Cerdanya, which has been restored to return its medieval aspect in the “Plaça Major”, surrounded by stone portals, the Fair of Sant LLorenç and the Days of the Cátars Refuges are celebrated. Among the buildings, we must highlight the old customs, today Casa de la Villa (Town House).
Next to the square is the church of Santiago and Santa María, which belongs to the Gothic Catalan. What can be seen today is the restoration that was made in the nineteenth century, after a fire that caused serious damage.
In the Plaça del Portal, in the fortified nucleus, is the tower of the Prison, which served as a defense of the walled nucleus.
In the lower part, next to the Segre, is the current Hydraulic Flour Factory, which was a real mill in the middle ages. It is also advisable to visit the “Sequer de les Pinyes”, where the seeds of the black and red pines were extracted years ago to be sent to the whole State.
In the center of Talló we find the church of Santa Maria de Talló, documented already in the tenth century and recognized as one of the most monumental examples of the Cerdà Romanesque, to the point that is known as the Cathedral of Cerdanya.
