The CadÍ-Moixeró Nature Reserve is an essential place for nature lovers and can be contemplated from anywhere in the region. Its peaks range from 900 metres (in the lowest areas of the valleys) to the 2,648 metres of the Canal Baridana mountain.

With a surface area of over 41,000 hectares distributed between Berguedà, Alt Urgell and La Cerdanya, it includes the mountains ranges of El Cadí and Moixeró, the Pedraforca massif and a large part of the hill of Alp and Puigllançada, and creates a mountainous barrier thirty kilometres long.

This geography offers a variety of landscapes, such as those of foothill, alpine and sub-alpine areas, as well as rocky environments with their characteristic rich vegetation and fauna. Given its east-west orientation, significant climatic differences are caused between each side, particularly with regard to the amount of rains. Similarly, small masses of water, such as torrents and some springs can be found, due to the calcareous structure.

The vegetation is dominated by meadows of fodder and garlic in the valleys, surrounded by fields of potatoes and beans. The forests are formed by deciduous trees, such as beech, oak, ash and willow. Despite this, the trees that really dress these spots are the Scots and black pine and in a smaller number, fir trees.

The animals inhabiting the area are typical of the high mountain, most notably the woodpecker (the park's symbol), Tengmalm's owl and the marten. However, the lords of the heights are the ibex, with a population of more than 2,600. This is, in fact, the protected area in Catalonia with the largest number of inhabitants and species of flora and fauna of European interest.

In addition to the natural beauty, the secret heritage of the park is a point of particular interest for tourists. The medieval walls and the porticoed square of Bagà are two perfect examples, without forgetting the gothic church and the towers and walls of Bellver de Cerdanya. The rural architecture and the picturesqueness of the majority of the towns and villages that form part of the park makes visits a real pleasure.
