Undoubtly, one of the axes that articulate the county is Llobregat river. A good number of entrepreneurs forged the industrial textile past of the county at its side... But far from the noise of the looms and the smoke of the factory chimneys we discover a river surrounded by luxuriant nature. Its source is a burst of life; Gaudí, the genius architect, probably captured its charm few kilometres away projecting Artigas Gardens, a wet garden, unique in its kind.
