Rupit (Catalonia) by marcgc

A few weeks ago I went to visit the Sallent waterfall, I was a little bit disappointed because there were not much water but the path to the waterfall starts in Rupit; and trolling around this medieval town with the old stone houses and natural stone streets is always a pleasure.

The town grew around the castle of Rupit, in a narrow ridge above the river and some streets are climbing up the hill. Nowadays, the only visible remainder of the castle is this vertical wall behind the houses in the photo.

If you ever visit Catalonia this is a place that you don’t want to miss. It’s only at 100Km from Barcelona, and it’s worth to spend one-day visiting the town and the beautiful surroundings.
