Map of Barcelona Countrysade Lakes Mountain Bike
The Collsacabra region is a natural area near Barcelona very attractive to all the intrepid mountain bikers: The Ter river known for its scenery, the homemade food and traditional culture of isolated villages, the Romanesque churches and chapels and the farmhouses of ancient history, the clifts of an altitude of 1.100m and the Guilleries forests.
Sau Lake. At the foot of the cliff Tavertet arises Sau Reservoir, which holds the river Ter. In 1962, using the slope of the valley between the cliffs and the Guilleries opened the Sau. This reservoir is considered one of the most peculiar of Catalonia with 17 km long and 3 km maximum width. Its opening has changed the face of the Sau Valley, making it a point of great interest to tourists.

Guilleries is an area of Natural Interest. The bulk of Guilleries climbs gently slopes from the Gothic bridge Malafogassa. In the area of natural forest vegetation is lush with different dwellings that served as the dreaded bandit hideout Serrallonga. Altogether, a landscape legend with chapels, monasteries and castles difficult to access.

Medieval bridge Malafogassa. Riera Major is born and ends at the Montseny Sau. The waters of this stream are to be very clean and for this reason it is usual to swim in summer and enjoy the fishing there. In its wake lies the bridge Malafogassa, medieval bridge dating from 1498, crossing the paths of the Guilleries Valll Sau.

Tavertet and cliffs. The cliffs define the appearance and unmistakable Collsacabra Tavertet scenario. Raised on a massive cliff 200 meters bordering the Ter valley, this place has been marked by isolation stood to lose their charm. Remains from the Neolithic period, the megalithic tomb, the field of funeral urns and the Iberian wall attest to its 5,000 years of history.
