   Aiguamúrcia it is the major superficial municipal size of the Alt Camp.

   The town of Aiguamúrcia is a small nucleus located at the left bank of the Gaià river. It has been formed around some buildings, probably from the Middle Ages. Near to these buildings, some roman ruins have been found.

   Albà, Masbarrat and Les Destres, are three small nucleus of population. It is important to point out their great landscape value, as they are situated on an elevated plain. The forest mass they have around, tum them into a privileged place as they are in contact with the nature. Near to Albà we find the ancient nucleus of Albà Vell, where the castle ruins of the village and the Romanesque chapel remains are preserved. It is also important to emphasize the ruins of a medieval building in Les Destres nucleus.

TOWN OF ALBA.jpg (42036 bytes)    The Pla of Manlleu, of relative recent formation, is surrounded by many traditional Catalan farmhouses. Most of these farmhouses have preserved the ancient Middle Age edifications. Close to its nucleus we may find a small Romanesque hermitage dedicated to Sant Miquel (XII century). At the Pla of Manlleu, we can also acquire wines and Spanish champagne, as well as cold cured meats.

ENTRANCE TO SANTES CREUS   Les Ordes is a small association of traditional Catalan farmhouses very closed among them. Besides its landscape value, one of the traditional Catalan farmhouses is dedicated to the agro tourism and another one to the production of ecologic agriculture.

   Santes Creus is a small village formed around the monastery. It is possible to reach it passing through a stone bridge from 1549. There is a modernist wine cellar at the main street, which gives access to a enclosure of the monastery.
