La Coma i la Pedra
Altitude: 1004 m
La Coma i la Pedra is a privileged town for water: in winter it has the ski resort of Port del Comte, and in summer, the medicinal waters of the Puda fountain and the sources of the Cardener, birthplace of this important tributary of the Llobregat.
Water has always been a highly valued resource in the term. Formerly, in Port del Comte, a natural ice well (now known as the Bòfia hole) was made and the muleteers took advantage of it as a warehouse.
We must also highlight the different waterfalls near the Stone, which were exploited as an energy source of an old textile factory.
The visit to the old town of La Coma shows the parish church of Sant Quirze and Santa Julita.
In a short walk following the waters of the Cardener River, you reach the center of the other city, La Piedra, where the church, consecrated in 962 and with a Romanesque base, stands out. Near a neighboring hill we can visit the bases of the walls of what was the old castle of La Piedra, documented since the fourteenth century and owned by the Cardona family.
