02. Busa and l'Aigua d'Ora

The Aigua d'Ora river is another interesting area for leisure, strolling along paths through the forests or visiting Romanesque monuments. Its crystal clear waters invite you to take a swim in its many pools and small dams. If you travel upstream, first you'll come across the churches of Sant Serni and Santa Eulàlia and then Sant Pere de Graudescales, a former Benedictine monastery.
   

   
In Ca l’Ambròs, a cottage nearby, the owners have preserved the old sawmill and the flour mill, both formerly powered by the river. From this point, right near the place where allegedly the count Guifré el Pilós was killed, you can enjoy an exceptional view over the Busa mountain, the mushroom pickers' favourite spot when autumn comes.
   

   
From Busa's plateau a brief walk (20 min) will take you to the Capolatell, a sort of rocky island that served as a natural prison during the Napoleonic wars, at the beginning of the 19th century. From every corner of Busa mountain the views over the area are spectacular.
   

   
As you go down from the plateau, you come across Besora's church and castle, another exceptional lookout over the county and a particularly quiet one, occasionally accompanied by jangling cowbells.
