Berga, Capolat, Castellar del Riu.
Covering a surface area of 635 hectares, this is the protected nature park that is closest to Berga, the capital of the Berguedà region.
This area is made up of the Serra de Queralt and the Serra dels Lladres, and its highest point is the peak of Campllong, 1,589 metres high. It has been declared as a Nature Spot of Interest due to its unique geological landscape of sheer rock walls.
The predominant form of vegetation are pine forests comprising different varieties of Scots pine, depending on the location, interspersed with some oak groves; the mythological interest of these woodlands is also worth a mention. From the Sanctuary of Queralt and the Figuerrassa viewpoint, there are splendid views looking out over inland Catalonia: Montserrat, Montseny, Sant Llorenç del Munt and Serra de l'Obac, Cabrera, etc.
To get to know the most secret nooks and crannies of this sierra, there are a vast number of waymarked paths. It is from here that the Camí dels Bons Homes (the Route of the Cathars - GR107) starts out, this being the most well known route in the area.
