La Coma i la Pedra
La Coma i la Pedra is a privileged town with many water resources: in winter there is the Port del Comte sky station and, in summer, there are the medicinal waters from La Puda’s source or the waterfalls of Cardener river which becomes a tributary of Llobregat river.
The water has always been a valued resource in this village; in the past, people used a mountain sinkhole as natural ice well to keep the ice preserved. Nowadays this point is known as Forat de la Bòfia. Also we have to emphasize many little waterfalls near La Pedra which were used as a source of energy of a textile factory in the past.
Into the old village we can found the church of Sant Quirze i Santa Julita. From this point, there’s a short walk, following the Cardener river, to the next village: La Pedra. In this, we found the Romanesque church of La Pedra, consecrated in 962. Near it, we found the ruins of La Pedra’s castle, dated from the XIV century and property of Cardona family.
Near La Pedra we found La Puda source, known for its smell and curative and medicinal properties. This point has been became a touristic attraction.
