Enjoy the surroundings by hiking along trails linking up the villages and contemplating the landscape from the viewpoints in Capdella, Mare de Déu de Far, Oveix, Beranui, Castell-estaó and Sant Quiri.

Each of the 19 hamlets and villages in Vall Fosca valley has its own church, of which the most noteworthy are the church of Sant Vicenç in Capdella and the church of Sant Martí in La Torre de Capdella, both listed as Cultural Assets of National Interest.

A visit to the Hydroelectric Museum in Capdella is essential for understanding the history of the valley.
