Textile Colony Route


The textile colonies along the banks of the River Llobregat were formerly linked by paths that have recently been restored and joined up into a 32-kilometre route between Cal Rosal (near Berga) and Balsareny.

The pleasant route runs through woods and croplands, passing riverside vegetable gardens, and enables walkers and cyclists to discover the textile colony buildings where thousands of people lived and worked over one hundred years ago.

Do not miss Vidal Colony Museum, Cal Pons Interpretation Centre, and Torre de l’Amo, the factory owner’s residence.
